- Perhaps you have been injured at work or made ill with a doctor's negligence? If so, you may have reason to contact a personal injury lawyer. You have the right to take legal recourse if you've been financially or physically harmed due to a third party's mistake. Not all mistake produced by a business or physician can cause a lawsuit, however, and it is essential to know what factors play in to these cases.


You may have a legitimate personal injury claim if you or a loved one has been injured due to a mistake made by a third party. Suffering an accident can leave you with crippling medical bills, lost pay because of missed work, plus an overall reduction in your standard of living. There are three main factors that must be true for you to possess a legitimate injury claim: (a) you may have suffered physical or financial damages, (b) your physical or financial damages were due to somebody else, and (c) the defendant is the individual who caused your injuries/financial damages.

Contact a personal injury lawyer immediately if these three conditions are true. These cases can be long and complicated, and it's important to get an expert in your corner right away.
