When you call our office, we will ask you to share the general facts.
Based on that, we may say “No, you don’t have a case and here is why…”
We may say “based on what you have shared, we think further investigation would be prudent.”
If we encourage investigation, we are going to need the relevant medical records. Then, maybe, expert review.
Sometimes experts turn down cases. When this happens, we recommend to the families that they not file suit rather than find a new expert.
After all, who wants to spend 1-2 years in litigation unless they have a good case?
Finally, if we do recommend filing suit, we want to meet the whole family and discuss what litigation will be like. Long. Emotional. Expensive and exhausting.
If you need an attorney to review your case, please call our office today.
Don’t forget, injury cases in Virginia have a two year statute of limitations, which means, you may not be able to file a suit no matter how good, two years after the negligence.
