How Can I Tell If I Have a Good Personal Injury Case?
If you’ve been injured in an accident such as a car accident, semi truck accident, motorcycle accident, or suffering the death of a family member you may be wondering how to tell if you have a good personal injury case. If you think you may have a case, call the law office of Parke Gordon Law Firm in Spokane for a free consultation. We can usually tell you over the phone if you have a good case.
Requirements for a Good Personal Injury Case
- You are suffering an injury or injuries due to the negligence or carelessness of the responsible party. For example, a person was sending a text message while driving and ran a stop sign hitting another vehicle and causing injuries to that driver. The driver who was texting is considered negligent for disregarding the responsibility of paying attention to the road while driving and causing injury to another.
- Injury or harm (compensatory damages) resulted from an accident. In the above example, if the person injured suffered a broken arm which resulted in medical bills, lost wages, and/or pain and suffering, the injury would be considered to have caused compensatory damages. These types of damages are things that the injured party may be compensated for.
Costs and Expenses for a Lawyer
A few costs and expenses involved with a personal injury case may include medical bills, lost wages, or property damages from an accident. Let us help you deal with the insurance companies regarding these costs. We will fight to get you every penny you deserve. No attorney fees will be collected until your case is settled.
Before the First Meeting with a Personal Injury Lawyer
Before the first meeting with a personal injury lawyer be sure to NOT talk with your insurance company. In addition, if the insurance company of the other party tries to contact you, do NOT speak with them. Any statements that you provide to an insurance company could be harmful to your case later. Insurance companies know how to manipulate the things you say in a way that could actually hurt your case.
Things to Bring to Your First Meeting with a Personal Injury Lawyer
- Health and auto insurance information
- Any medical bills you may have already received from the accident
- The information you gathered from the accident such as statements from witnesses, photos of the accident, etc.
During the First Meeting with a Personal Injury Lawyer
After an attorney has agreed to accept your case, all communications regarding your case should go through your attorney’s office. At your first meeting, you will be asked to sign documentation called a “retainer” or a “representation agreement.” This is a contract with your attorney that outlines the terms of representation.
During the first meeting, your lawyer will ask you for greater details about the accident as well as more details about your injuries. To prepare yourself, think of any questions such as who, what, where, when, why, and how regarding the accident or your injuries. This will prepare your mind to answer the questions in your meeting more efficiently. The longevity of your first meeting will depend on how severe your injuries were and who was involved in the accident.
Keep in mind some of the questions your personal injury attorney may ask in your first meeting may be difficult to hear an answer. Your attorney needs the information to better your case and get you the best possible result.
In some cases, your attorney may feel it is necessary to do further research regarding your case. This is not unusual and nothing to be alarmed about.

What is the Value of a Personal Injury Case?
The value of a personal injury case varies depending on the type of accident as well as a number of other factors.

A good lawyer will build the value of an injury claim by pursuing a recovery of all damages by hiring doctors, economists, and other experts to document all recoverable damages. The personal injury attorneys at Parke Gordon Law Firm are experienced in maximizing the value of an injury claim and will fight for every penny you are owed.
