Do I Have A “Good Case?”

People who’ve been hurt in accidents ask us all the time whether they have a “good case.” What they’re really asking is “do I have a case that an attorney will take on?”

Not every person who’s been hurt in an accident has a “good case.” Just because there’s been an accident doesn’t mean you even have a case. There are two parts to every “good case”: first, somebody else must be at fault or responsible for the accident; and, second, you suffered significant injuries such as broken bones, head injuries, traumatic brain injuries, permanent injuries, burns, scars, lacerations or someone lost their life in the accident. Ultimately, you should have your claim considered by an experienced accident attorney to evaluate whether you have a “good case.”
