• PERSONAL INJURY & TORTS
Areas of Legal Practice: Joseph J. Pappacoda
If you, or a family member have been injured, either physically, emotionally, or financially, due to the willful, intentional, or negligent act(s) of another, you must consider consulting with an attorney to determine whether it is in your best interests to file a lawsuit for monetary damages, against the person(s), or entity responsible for your injuries, or loss.
The most common type of personal injury case is a traffic accident case. Some other types of civil suits include slip-and-fall cases, wrongful death cases, and a variety of negligence cases, related specifically to the facts of your case. In many instances, you will be seeking redress from an insurance company insuring the person or entity that caused your injuries.
In other instances, you may be seeking redress from your own insurance company. It is always possible to sue the person that injured you, individually, for damages. It is recommended that you consult with an attorney to go over the particular facts of your case, so that you can obtain competent legal advice regarding the various options that you have.
Many attorneys will agree to represent you on your personal injury case on a contingent fee basis, which means that if you do not win your case, or receive some monetary award, negotiated or otherwise, that you will not have to pay any attorney’s fees for the attorney’s representation. If you cannot afford to hire an attorney in your case, you should still consult with an attorney, or attorneys, to determine whether you can be represented on a contingent fee basis.
