When your health or safety is compromised due to someone else’s actions, the law empowers you to seek compensation. At Gunn Law Group, we specialize in securing personal injury settlements for victims who have suffered due to another’s negligence.

Navigating Your Personal Injury Claim

Starting and successfully resolving a personal injury claim are distinctly different challenges. While many attorneys can initiate a claim, expertise and strategic acumen are essential to ensure you receive adequate compensation for your injuries. Here are a few key steps to follow:

Proving Negligence
To receive compensation, it’s essential to prove that your injury resulted from another’s negligence. Negligence can manifest in various ways, depending on the specifics of your case, such as:

  • Texting while driving
  • Poor maintenance of property leading to accidents
  • Animal attacks due to an owner’s negligence
  • Unnecessary medical procedures that cause harm

Together with your attorney, you’ll gather evidence and witness testimony to establish the other party’s negligence.

Collecting Your Compensation
The method of compensation may vary based on the specifics of your case. In scenarios like car accidents, the responsible party’s insurance typically covers the settlement, often paid out as a lump sum. About half of personal injury claims result in a settlement, with the vast majority being resolved outside of court. Alternatively, if the defendant is paying out of pocket, a structured settlement might be arranged, typically involving installment payments.

Choosing the Right Attorney
The success of your personal injury claim largely depends on the expertise of your attorney. Here are critical considerations when selecting legal representation:

  • Experience and Specialization: Ensure your attorney has specific experience with your type of personal injury claim and a solid track record of success.
  • Comfort and Communication: Choose an attorney who makes you feel comfortable and understood, as personal injury cases can be personally and emotionally demanding.
  • Understanding Costs: Discuss all financial aspects upfront. Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, typically claiming 33% to 40% of the settlement.
