Do I have a personal injury claim?
If you have suffered a personal injury (see What is a personal injury), and you can show that someone else is responsible (at fault) for causing you this injury, then you may have a personal injury claim.
To have a personal injury case, you must be able to show that you have been injured. This may be a physical injury or it may be an emotional injury. In addition, you must be able to show that someone else (the defendant) is at fault for your injury under a negligence, strict liability or intentional misconduct theory.
As a personal injury victim, you are entitled to compensation for damages you have incurred as a result of another partyís negligence. You can recover money for medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and out of pocket expenses. Additionally, you are entitled to compensation for psychological harm including pain and suffering, loss of comfort and society, emotional trauma, scarring and disfigurement, embarrassment, etc.

Do I need a personal injury attorney?
If you have been injured as a result of someone elseís negligence, you may have been contacted by that partyís insurance company to settle your dispute. While it is possible for you to negotiate your claim on your own, a personal injury attorney has the knowledge and expertise to deal with insurance companies and maximize your claim. In complex cases, a personal injury attorney knows how to lead you through the ins-and-outs of navigating the legal system. It has been consistently shown that a personal injury attorney greatly increases the amount of compensation you receive from your claim

How do I pay for a personal injury attorney?
The Law Offices of Colyn B. Desatnik takes all cases on a contingency basis. For cases taken on a contingency basis, the attorney receives a percentage of the amount recovered. This means that you donít pay a dime if you donít receive compensation for your claim.

When should I file my claim?
If you believe that you have a personal injury claim, you should not hesitate to contact an attorney immediately. Every state permits you a certain amount of time in which to file your claim. This timeframe, referred to as the Statute of Limitations, varies from state to state. The Statute of limitations can range from about 6 months to 2 years. If you fail to file your claim within the appropriate timeframe, you may be unable to file your claim in the future.
