How Do You Know If You Have A Personal Injury/Car Wreck Case Worth Pursuing?
The first thing you need to ask yourself is “How serious are my injuries?” Do not downplay your car wreck related injuries. Even injuries such as neck and back strain from a car wreck can be long-lasting, lingering weeks or even months. Many times, it takes a few days for the pain to develop from a car wreck.
On the other hand, if your injuries or losses are minor, or you really did not suffer any injuries in the accident, then pursuing a claim against the negligent person who hurt you probably will not be worth the time or trouble.
What if it is not clear with whom fault liest for your injuries or you are not sure how your injuries happened? In that case, you probably are not going to have a good result if you pursue a personal injury case or car wreck case.
Another question to consider is whether there is a “deep pocket” such as an insurance company or corporation that is available to pay damages. Usually, in a car wreck case, if the at-fault driver has no insurance, and you have no insurance, there is no one to compensate you for your injuries, regardless of their severity.
