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 Personal Injury is not over immediately after it happens. The effects of a serious injury can be devastating for you and your family in both 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. You need a Personal Injury attorney who can ensure that you and your family are adequately compensated for your injuries.
Serious Personal Injuries
At Hurst & Hurst, we only represent clients who have serious Personal Injury claims. We have significant experience in handling injury claims from both sides of the courtroom. We have represented injured parties as a firm and the majority of Daniel Hurst’s practice is devoted to defending healthcare entities in suits that frequently involve injuries. As such, we take a very close look at any claim to decide whether 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 has been 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 cannot ever 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 and 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 your hire our attorneys for a Personal Injury case.
Settlement Vs. Trial In Personal Injury Cases
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 and 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, 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.
