Three Questions to Ask Yourself After an Accident

by Staff Blogger | February 27th, 2017

“Do I have a case?” is the question we get most often. That’s why folks in San Francisco call an attorney in the first place—to find out if their injuries warrant an injury claim. In your initial consultation, the personal injury attorneys at Berg Injury Lawyers will listen closely to your story, as well as ask a number of questions to determine whether or not you have a case. However, there are 3 questions you can ask yourself before your consultation to determine whether or not you may have a personal injury case.

Was the accident someone else’s fault? If the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may have a claim against that individual and/or their insurance company. However, if the accident was your fault, there’s probably not a lot we can do to help.

Did you sustain injuries? It sounds obvious, but it’s worth saying. An injury claim requires injuries. If you were simply inconvenienced and not injured, you may not have a viable personal injury case.

Have you undergone or do you expect to need medical treatment? The largest part of most personal injury claims are medical expenses. If you did not or don’t expect to have any medical treatment costs associated with your accident, you may not have a claim.
