Do You Have a Case?
One of the questions we get asked most often is “How do I know if I have a case?” That’s a complicated question that depends on a number of factors. Unfortunately, there’s no magic formula for determining whether or not you have a case. Only an experienced attorney can make that determination after reviewing the circumstances of your accident.
Perhaps a better question to ask yourself is “Should I call a lawyer?” And you can answer that question right now by considering these three criteria:
- Were you injured in the auto accident? An Arkansas personal injury attorney can only help you if you suffered injuries as a result of your accident.
- Was the accident your fault? If the accident wasn’t your fault, you might have a personal injury claim. If you don’t know whether or not you were at fault, review the accident report or contact the reporting officer. An attorney can also help you determine fault with a copy of the accident report.
- Have you signed anything from the insurance company? Most of the time, if you’ve already accepted a settlement offer from the insurance company, an attorney can’t help you.
If you meet the above criteria, you should call an experienced law firm immediately. Although it doesn’t necessarily mean you have a case, it does qualify you for a free consultation. Most attorneys can determine whether or not you have a case with a short conversation. Contact us anytime. We’d be happy to speak with you.
