If you or a loved one has been injured or killed due to someone else's negligence, malpractice, poor maintenance of property, or the failure of a product, you may have questions about whether you have the right to file a claim for your losses - and, whether you should.
If you feel that someone else is at-fault for the injury sustained or the wrongful death, a personal injury lawyer can help you understand your rights and advise you on possible next steps.
At Injured.com we provide you with a free initial case consultation - a consultation that comes with no obligation and no strings attached.
Yes - Injured.com is a law firm. We are licensed, experienced and in good standing with the State Bar. We review thousands of potential cases each month. We have the experience necessary to guide you toward success. Sometimes that means we are not the best firm to help with your situation - in those cases we will direct you to another well-versed, experienced and trusted attorney.
A word of warning. Don't be fooled by many of the other websites offering free injury consultations which are not operated by a law firm. These other sites are operated by marketers who are looking to sell your case to the highest bidder. If you come across such a site, run as fast as you can. Your health and financial future are at stake - you need to seek the counsel of experienced injury attorneys.
During your initial consultation, our goal is to determine if you have a claim that we can assist you with. To do that, we need to gather some information from you, to get a better understanding of the facts.
Firstly, we need to know about the incident, and the injuries that were sustained. This is to get a sense of who was responsible and whether the outcome warrants taking further action from an attorney.
Next, we are going to make a preliminary determination if action can still be taken regarding your matter.
We are also going to ask questions that help us understand the strength and complexity of the case. These help us to determine who is best suited to handle a case like yours if we were to move forward.
After we have gathered pertinent information, we will make a recommendation about how we can assist you. This usually boils down to one of four outcomes:
1. We require additional information or further internal consultation to decide. If we require additional information to make a recommendation to you or need to consult with others before making a recommendation, we will advise you as such - and request that you provide the necessary information to decide. 2. We believe that you have a legal matter that we can assist with. If we believe that we can assist you, we will outline the steps you need to take to retain our services. It is then up to you, to determine if this is an action that you would like to take. 3. We think you potentially have a case, but it would be best for another firm to handle it. If we believe that another firm is more well-suited to assist you with your legal matter, we will offer to bring in another firm as co-counsel to be the handling attorney/firm on your case. There is of course, no obligation to do this. The inclusion of co-counsel does not impact any fees that you may pay at the conclusion of a case. And, we will still be around, and will continue to participate in your case. 4. We are unable to assist with your matter and would encourage consultation with other attorneys. If we do not believe that we can assist you with your case, and we are unable to refer it, we will let you know as well. It is important to understand that this does not mean you do not have a case. It simply means that it did not meet our criteria to provide you with legal representation. For this reason, we highly encourage you to consult with other attorneys before giving up on it.
After we have outlined how we can help, we will do our best to answer any questions you have. But we want to do this in a responsible way... Legal matters are complex and nuanced. During an initial consultation, we will have not had an opportunity to fully review the facts and evidence of your case. For this reason, the answers we provide to your questions may be general and not specific to your circumstances.
It is always nice to know who we are talking to, so we start there. We will get your name and share ours. Then, we will ask you how we can get in touch with you in case we get disconnected for some reason.
With introductions out of the way, we are going to ask you some basic questions about the matter for which you are seeking advice. This would include questions like:
Now that you have provided the facts, we may ask you to expand on some information that was provided. It is okay if you're not able to answer every question we ask. But the more information that you can provide, the more confident we can be in advising on next steps.
We have heard you. Now, we are going to share how we can help, or tell you who we think can. If it is us that can help, we will talk to you about signing an attorney authorization form to make us your legal advocate. If we think someone else is best suited to help you, we will talk to you about associating with co-counsel on your case. Either way, the next action taken (if any), is up to you.
You will likely have questions - fire away. We will do our best to answer them. But please don't be frustrated if we cannot answer some case-specific questions. Often, we do not have enough confirmed information to speak to certain aspects of your matter.
There is no trickery here. Free means free - no cost to you. Our consultations are free of cost and free of obligation. You can contact us at any time for a free initial discussion about your case.
If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident, it is likely that you are experiencing a measure of confusion, if not entirely overwhelmed. The legal process may seem unclear, insurance companies may be pressuring you, and medical bills may be piling up.
Our consultations are a pressure free way to get some clarity and options about moving forward. You are then free to do with it, as you wish. If we can help or offer guidance, you can choose to accept it - or not. If you need more time to consider your options, that is fine too. If you want to talk to other attorneys first, go for it. We are here to help!
