An accident attorney will review the information and determine the best course of action for you. The law requires that anyone who has been injured as the result of the negligence of another must be compensated. It is the burden of the injured party to prove that negligence has occurred and that the other party had an obligation to provide a safe environment and failed to do so. Negligence in a personal injury case must be proven by a preponderance of the evidence. This means that it was more likely than not that negligence occurred. The proof in this type of case has a lower standard than that required in criminal cases.
A personal injury case can take a long time to prepare, so it is best to provide your attorney with the amount of time necessary to get your case ready for trial. If you do not file a claim within a specified length of time, you will lose your right to the claim. The length of time to file a claim depends on the specific type of case. Your attorney will explain this information to you based on your case.
