The initial Investigation and Evaluation phase may be the most important stage. This is where we learn about the circumstances surrounding your injury. During this phase, we investigate the liability behind your accident, examine the damages that you suffered, and establish whether anyone had insurance to help pay for your injury. We are in constant contact with you to analyze the evidence surrounding your claim and to determine the strength of your case.
The Investigation phase is going to be focusing on the investigation/evaluation of three major features.
Those three elements are:
a. Liability –
Liability is when you are legally responsible to someone based on an act or a failure to act that resulted in an injury or loss. Tort liability may be found against lots of different sources, such as a person, a group of people, a business, a corporation, or a government entity.
b. Damages –
If you are injured in an accident as a result of someone else’s negligent, intentional, or wrongful conduct, then you are entitled to be compensated for your loss or injury in the form of damages. Depending on your injuries, different types of damages may be awarded in your favor.
c. Insurance –
Insurance is a promise to be compensated for future possible losses in exchange for a monthly payment to an insurance provider. You buy insurance to protect yourself against uncertainty with the expectation that your insurer will uphold its part of the bargain.
Evaluation of a Legal Claim
Our investigation provides us with the information we need to thoroughly evaluate your case. This includes looking at the liability of everyone involved, examining the percentage of liability of each person, estimating the amount of time we believe it would take to resolve your case, and calculating the amount of damages that can be recovered from the tortfeasor or tortfeasors. We make sure to communicate these findings with you, to make sure you are an active participant in exercising your legal rights.
