No Recovery, No Fee: Your Financial Security Is Our Priority

injury

We understand the financial strain that follows a serious accident. Medical bills, lost income, and ongoing expenses create tremendous pressure. Our contingency fee model means you don’t owe us any legal fees unless we secure a settlement or win your case in court. This eliminates any upfront financial risk, allowing you to focus on your health and well-being.

Building Your Case: How Liability Is Determined

Establishing liability is the cornerstone of any successful personal injury claim. To secure compensation, you must have evidence proving:

  • Negligence: The at-fault party acted (or failed to act) in a way that a reasonable person would not.
  • Duty of Care: The other party owed you a legal duty to act in a way that prevents harm
  • Causation: Their negligence directly caused your injuries.
  • Damages: You suffered losses (financial, physical, or emotional) as a result of the accident.

Understanding liability is just the first step in building a strong case. Our dedicated personal injury attorneys will interview you about damages and other critical elements of your Goshen injury claim to create a personalized legal strategy.

Maximizing Your Recovery: The Types of Damages You Can Claim

Personal injury victims are often entitled to various forms of compensation. These damages fall into broad categories of economic, non-economic, and punitive damages:

Economic damages cover tangible losses like:

  • Medical expenses (past, present, and future)
  • Lost wages and reduced earning capacity
  • Property damage

Non-economic damages address the intangible impact of your injuries, including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Disfigurement or disability

Punitive damages are rare, as they are only awarded in cases where the at-fault party’s behavior was especially reckless or intentional.

Time Is of the Essence: Understanding the Statute of Limitations

In most cases, you have three years from the date of your Goshen accident to initiate a lawsuit. However, there are exceptions:

  • Minors: The time limit may be extended if the injured person is a minor.
  • Wrongful Death: A different time limit applies in wrongful death suits.
  • Government Agencies: Shorter deadlines may apply if you’re suing a municipality.

The clock is ticking, but we’re prepared to help you file on time. Let our compassionate team help you understand the deadlines that apply to your case.

Determining the Potential Value of Your Accident Claim

Calculating the value of a personal injury case takes careful consideration. Multiple factors play a role, including:

  • Severity of Injuries: The nature and extent of your injuries are a primary driver of compensation.
  • Medical Costs: This includes past and expected future expenses related to treatment, rehabilitation, and related care.
  • Lost Income: Any lost wages, current and future, will be assessed.
  • Pain and Suffering: While less tangible, this represents the physical and emotional toll of the accident.
  • Long-Term Impact: How injuries might affect your future earning potential and quality of life is also considered.

You can rely on us to assess your case and pursue compensation on your behalf from every available angle. We will leave no stone unturned in the process of valuing your claim.

Understanding Your Case Timeline

Filing a personal injury claim might seem daunting in the midst of your physical recovery. Our team is here to guide you through the stages and keep you informed every step of the way. While every Goshen personal injury case is unique, there are some common phases you can expect:

  • Consultation: You’ll meet with an attorney to discuss your accident, understand your rights, and explore legal options.
  • Investigation: Your attorney will gather evidence, such as medical records, police reports, and witness statements.
  • Demand Letter: You will send a formal letter to the insurance company outlining your claim and demanding compensation.
  • Negotiations: Your attorney will negotiate with the insurance company to try to reach a fair settlement.
  • Litigation: If a settlement cannot be reached, your attorney will file a lawsuit, and your case will proceed to court.
  • Trial: A small percentage of cases go to trial, where a judge or jury will ultimately determine liability and damages.

The timeline of a personal injury case can vary significantly depending on the complexity of the injuries, the cooperativeness of the insurance companies, and whether it goes to trial.
