Proving a Claim
If the negligence of another party can be proved, you as the injured party may be entitled to monetary compensation from that party. In the United States, this system is complex and controversial. Attorneys often represent clients on a “contingency basis,” in which the attorney’s fee is a percentage of the plaintiff’s eventual compensation, payable when the case is resolved. Oftentimes, having an attorney becomes essential because cases become extremely complex such as in medical malpractice cases.
Personal injuries can be severe and have life-altering effects. If you have been involved in an accident and suffer from a personal injury, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Joynes & Gaidies are here to answer your questions, explain your rights and help you pursue justice.
