Having a Personal Injury is a serious matter that can devastate your health, earning potential and your family. In most cases, the impact of your injury is not over immediately after it happens. The effects of a serious injury can impact you and your family in the short and the long term. Personal Injury cases include injuries from auto accidents, claims of wrongful death, premise liability (including slip and fall), and any other harm caused by another person's negligence.
Representing Clients With Serious Personal Injuries
At Hurst & Hurst, we only represent personal injury clients who have serious claims. We have significant experience in handling injury claims from both sides of the courtroom. We have represented many people injured in accidents, ranging from dog bites to major auto accidents and big trucking accidents. A great deal of Daniel Hurst's early legal career entailed defending healthcare entities in suits that frequently involve injuries or negligence claims. Our firm has experience in how both sides approach personal injury claims making us better able to assist clients who have been injured in accidents. We take a close look at any claim to decide if it has merit. We will only accept a client who has a serious injury that was legitimately caused by someone else.
Statute of Limitations For Personal Injury Claims
If you have a Personal Injury, it is critical that you contact an attorney, even if it is not us, as soon as possible. In most situations when a person is injured they only have one (1) year from the date of the injury to bring their claim, or the claim will be barred by the Statute of Limitations. If you fail to file a complaint with the Court within the Statute of Limitations, you will not ever be able to bring your claim and the person who caused your injury is off the hook.
No Up-Front Fees For Personal Injury Representation
Don't worry about having the money to pay for our services in Personal Injury cases. We can take these cases based on a contingent fee. That means we only collect a fee if we win or settle your case. We are paid based on a percentage of what you receive from the person who caused your Personal Injury. You will not owe our firm anything on the day you hire our attorneys for a Personal Injury case.
Settlement Vs. Trial In Personal Injury Cases
Our representation of Personal Injury clients is always directed by what is in the best interest of the client. In the majority of cases that will mean a settlement before trial. The hard truth is that going to trial is expensive and takes a very long time. In many personal injury cases, it can take years to go to trial because our court system is overloaded. Also, the insurance companies who often pay these claims have an incentive to drag your case out as long as possible. After all, they haven’t been injured and they already have money. Taking a settlement before trial is going to be the fastest way for you to recover money for your Personal Injury, but in some cases, you can get more money by going to trial. You and your lawyer will have to make the decision on whether it is best to settle the case or go to trial. Our lawyers are willing to negotiate on your behalf in order to obtain the best settlement possible when appropriate. But more importantly for you, we are not afraid to go to trial. If your case has merit, you shouldn't fear going to trial either. We are here for you.
