Do I Have a Good Personal Injury Case?
If you think you may have a case, call the law office of Brent Gordon Law Firm in Idaho Falls or Pocatello for a free consultation. One of our experienced attorneys can usually tell you over the phone if you have a good case. Here are some factors of 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 the passenger. 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.
How Much is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?
A personal injury claim worth varies depending on the type of accident as well as a number of other factors. Some of these factors include who is liable, how severe are the injuries, and how hard is your personal injury attorney willing to fight for you. A good lawyer will build the value of an injury claim by pursuing recovery of all damages by hiring doctors, economists, and other experts to document all recoverable damages. The personal injury attorneys at Brent Gordon Law Firm are experienced in maximizing the value of an injury claim and will fight for every penny you are owed.
Determining the Worth of a Personal Injury Case
The amount of your claim could be based on the expenses of a few factors such as:
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Stress or burdens on you or your family
These factors vary greatly depending on if you’ve been injured in a car accident, motorcycle accident, semi truck accident, or suffering a wrongful death of a loved one. The experienced and knowledgeable personal injury attorneys at Brent Gordon Law Firm believe every client deserves fair representation to gain to compensation deserved from their injury claim. There are many other small factors that could pertain to your particular injury claim. That is exactly why it will be a lot less stressful and easier for you to hire an attorney that knows what to do.

What to Bring to Your First Meeting with a Personal Injury Attorney
- 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. Read some tips on what to do after a car accident.
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 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.
How Long Does It Take to Settle a Personal Injury Case?
Every personal injury case is different and will take different amounts of time to settle. It can take months or it could even take years to reach a fair settlement agreement with all parties responsible.
A responsible party that often drags out a fair settlement is the insurance company. Often times insurance companies like to make a “lowball” offer to get the client to settle faster. These offers are to persuade accident victims to avoid pursuing a lawsuit or the case further. However, if you have an experienced attorney on your side from Brent Gordon Law Firm, you are in good hands. Our lawyers will fight for every penny you are owed.
By refusing to accept an initial lowball settlement offer from an insurance company, you and your attorney may proceed with a follow-up offer or pre-trial preparation.
Will I Need to Go to Trial To Resolve My Personal Injury Claim?
A common question clients of Brent Gordon Law Firm ask is “Will I need to go to trial to resolve my personal injury claim?” Many people fear to hire an attorney because they think they will have to appear in court. The fact is only four percent to five percent of all personal injury cases in the United States go to court. 95 to 96 percent of all personal injury cases are settled pretrial. These statistics are from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Statistics Bulletin, Federal Tort Trials and Verdicts.
Is Going to Trial Necessary?
The experienced personal injury attorneys at Brent Gordon Law Firm will work hard to prevent the need for trial by building a strong case demonstrating how likely you are to receive a court verdict in your favor. This is one reason why if we don’t think you have a good case, we don’t take it on in the first place.
Insurance companies and the other party will do whatever they can to pay you as little compensation as possible. They will even go so far as to try to make you look like the guilty party. This is exactly why you need an experienced and trusted attorney on your side. Let the trusted, aggressive and experienced attorneys at Brent Gordon Law Firm help you beat Goliath!
