One of the most common questions we get from people who reach out to us is “Do You Think I Have a Case?” – The answer is: it depends.
The answer can be complex – it may not always be obvious when someone has a case. There are many determining factors that are evaluated by legal teams. Those can include:
- Damages – what were the damages? It’s essential to understand the different levels of damages and how that can affect whether or not there needs to be a claim or lawsuit filed against the responsible party. Also, there is sometimes not enough recovery to cover the expenses, time, and other factors involved in a legal case.
- Liability - who was at fault in the situation? Were they insured? How did the incident happen? These are all very important questions when trying to determine if someone has a case.
- Proof – can you prove the person or party responsible has caused the damages to you or your loved ones? Without proof, it can be very difficult or not even possible to hold someone legally responsible.
- Statute of limitations – Is the incident within the statute of limitations? Oftentimes, for many of our daycare and car wreck cases in Texas, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of the incident. That means that you have two years from the date of the incident to file a legal claim – otherwise, the courts will not accept it.
For the person or family who is dealing with the injury, figuring out if there’s a case or claim can be overwhelming. There is a great deal of information needed, along with professional evaluation by attorneys. And oftentimes, the unique circumstances of your situation can make the matter so much more confusing. That’s why we offer 100% free case evaluations – to ensure your concerns are addressed.
