When you or a loved one has suffered an injury and you believe it is the fault of another, you need to contact reputable legal counsel as soon as possible. The competent and caring attorneys at Held & Hines LLP have years of experience successfully pursuing all types of personal injury claims. You can be confident that our attorneys will comprehensively evaluate your case and provide sound advice on how to proceed.
The key components of any personal injury matter are liability and damages. There are various ways a person or entity can be found liable for an injury. Negligence is the most common basis for a personal injury lawsuit, alleging that there was a breach of a duty to exercise reasonable care. There is also strict liability, when defective products lead to injury and the designers and manufacturers are held strictly liable because the product is found to be unreasonably dangerous. Intentional acts (such as assault and battery) can also lead to personal injury lawsuits even if there is a criminal case arising from the incident.
Fact gathering is a crucial part of the process, and our attorneys will conduct a thorough review of your case to be sure that every party responsible is identified. Another important factor is determining what statute of limitations applies to your case because that time limit can be quite short. Depending on who you believe is responsible for your injuries, you might have as few as 90 days or up to three years to file a claim. If too much time has passed, you can be prevented from even filing a case. This is yet another reason why it is so imperative to contact Held & Hines LLP personal injury attorneys as soon as possible.
