The Personal Injury Process
It is important to start your legal process as soon as possible after you have sustained an injury. There are laws that limit the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit to collect for your injuries.
The personal injury process begins with a personal meeting with one of our lawyers either at the Hood Law office or your home or care facility if it is difficult for you to travel or if you would be more comfortable at your home or care facility.
Following our initial meeting, we will immediately investigate the events surrounding your injury. Statements, photographs, and records will be collected. When necessary, experts will be hired. When all the facts have been collected and liability determined, we will file a lawsuit against the proper defendants.
Hood Law will pursue your personal injury case through trial, representing your interests vigorously. This will include the written discovery process where the person who caused your injuries provides written answers to specific questions in addition to the deposition process where we verbally question the person responsible for your injuries while they are under oath; his or her responses are then recorded by a court reporter. Evidence will be collected to prove to the judge and jury that the person who injured you is at fault and that your losses deserve to be compensated.
Prior to trial, the representatives of the person who hurt you may make an offer to settle your case. The attorneys at Hood Law are experienced in litigation, negotiation, mediation, and arbitration– we will discuss your options thoroughly with you and will advise you. You make the choice of whether to accept an offer or go to trial.
These legal actions are done without cost to you. Hood Law is compensated by a contingency fee– we get paid only when you collect compensation for your injuries.
What will it cost?
There is no initial cost to you. We only collect a fee from the monies paid by the defendant to you when you receive compensation for your injuries.
What is negligence?
Negligence means someone was at fault and failed to use reasonable care, resulting in loss and injury to someone else. In order to collect compensation for injuries, it is necessary to prove your injuries were the result of someone else’s negligence or intent.
Should I talk with the insurance company?
It is important to obtain legal counsel before you speak to anyone else about your case, including the insurance company, as statements you make may be used against you.
How long do I have to file a personal injury claim?
There are varying lengths of time in which to file your case, depending on the defendant you are filing a claim against, the type of case, and the location where the lawsuit is filed. It is important to start your legal process as soon as possible to avoid being prevented from filing a lawsuit against the person or entity that is responsible for your injuries.
