As a general rule, if someone else’s negligence caused your injury then you are entitled to compensation for your personal injuries.
The specific legal rights that apply to your case, in particular, will vary depending on the facts. For example, your rights or your potential damages may be impacted by:
- The type of incident that resulted in your injury.
- How long ago the incident happened.
- Whether you were partially at fault for the incident that resulted in your injury.
- The quality of the evidence available to prove what happened.
Other factors may also have a significant impact on your legal rights and potential recovery.
These factors are unique to your potential case and should be discussed with your personal injury lawyer.
Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer Before It Is Too Late
Because specific timelines will apply to your case, you can lose all of your rights if you wait too long to take legal action. That is why it is so important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after you are hurt. An experienced lawyer can explain your legal rights given the unique situation that you are in and can help you understand the potential benefits of pursuing a claim.
