How long should I wait before contacting a lawyer?
The sooner your lawyer can start working for you, the better. Depending on your case, you have only a certain amount of time to go to court. If you wait too long, you may be barred from bringing your lawsuit by a statute of limitations. Also, the longer you wait makes it more difficult to obtain the evidence you need to support your case.
What does it mean to settle a case?
Settling a case means that you agree to accept money in return for dismissing your claim against the person or entity that injured you. Once the settlement is finalized, you will sign documents releasing the other side of any further liability.
What are the first steps that victims of medical malpractice should take?
If you suspect that you have become the victim of medical malpractice and are still under the care of that doctor, consider seeing another medical professional. Next, contact us. There is a limit on the amount of time that victims have to file medical malpractice claims. It is in your best interest to call our law firm as soon as you suspect malpractice.
Who is liable if I am injured by a defective product?
The manufacturer, distributor, or seller of the product may be liable for your injuries. If the product was ever repaired, the repairperson might have responsibility for damages. The assistance of an attorney is valuable in determining who is responsible for injury or damages caused by a defective product. We can help you identify all parties that may be held accountable in your lawsuit.
How long will it take to go to trial?
This can depend greatly on where the case is filed and its complexity. Sometimes courts can move quickly, sometimes it may take a year or more.
