Facts are the cornerstone of a personal injury or medical malpractice claim. For that reason, our initial consultation with clients will involve lots of detailed questions, such as names, dates, and observations.
The purpose of this first meeting is not to test a client's memory, but to evaluate the claim for potential liability, also known as fault. If we believe that a client's injury was the result of another individual's negligence, we will get to work developing a strategy.
The path of a negligence lawsuit can be long, which is why an experienced attorney is needed. Proving that an individual breached his or her duty of care and caused our client's injury may require extensive evidence, even eyewitness testimony.
