A lot of people calling or emailing our office want to know, “How do I know if I have a valid personal injury case?” Although complex, our team of experienced attorneys is able to answer this question by analyzing the aspects of each particular type of case. For example, in a motor vehicle case, New York law provides that only people with a serious injury can proceed with that case. A fractured bone or scarring on the face is a serious injury that someone is allowed to pursue. There are also lesser, vaguer categories that still may qualify.
Therefore, an experienced attorney who focuses on that type of law, needs to be consulted. Based on the information provided, they will be able to determine if there is a case. There are a lot of other types of cases that our firm handles such as medical malpractice. You would need to speak to someone here, as well as our doctor on staff, and decide if there is a case here or not. In any event, you need an experienced attorney to speak to regarding this. Information that you find on the Internet or by researching or talking to friends can be helpful, but to know definitively, call our office or call any experienced lawyer who focuses in that field.
