What is liability, and how do we know who is responsible for an accident?
Liability is a legal term that means that the person or party responsible for an event is also responsible for its outcome. Liability can be shared and is often very complicated to show. Liability is almost like an equation – for instance, in a car accident, both drivers can be negligent, but the driver who is most negligent is the liable party.
What will my claim cover?
A personal injury settlement will vary based on the individual case and the costs incurred. In many cases, a settlement will include compensation for emergency and ongoing medical care, lost wages, regular bills, and pain and suffering. Speak with one of our attorneys to get a better understanding of what you can expect.
How long does a personal injury case take?
Some cases are quickly managed, but others can take months. The length of time it takes will depend on how complicated your case is, your needs and medical diagnoses, and the insurance companies’ willingness to provide fair compensation. Regardless, at Edelman, Krasin & Jaye, PLLC, we are here to be your advocate at every step of the process.
