Do Morgan and Morgan Lawyers Represent Accident Victims?
The attorneys at Morgan & Morgan have a strong track record of representing accident victims who have been harmed because of someone else's reckless or negligent behavior. This applies to a broad range of legal cases, such as slip-and-fall accidents, medical malpractice, car accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, and motorcycle accidents.

We know that the justice system can be overwhelming and it can be very frustrating to recover compensation for an accident that was not your fault. It is why we leverage our knowledge, resources, and strong network to make sure that we prepared as compelling a case as possible for you.
What Will a Lawyer Do First in My Case?
One of the first and most important steps in your case is to identify whether or not you have eligibility to file a claim. Each state has specific rules known as the statute of limitations that set a time limit for which you must file your lawsuit prior to the expiration of this time limit. Failing to file a lawsuit within the statute of limitations means that you will forego your right to recover compensation. This is true even if you otherwise had a very solid claim against someone else who was negligent and caused you injuries. Your lawyers will sit down with you in an initial consultation and discuss the basics of your case, including whether or not you have grounds to file and some of the primary issues involved in your case.
You should also ask questions about what it is like to work with the law firm so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not these lawyers are the right advocates to represent you. If you choose to move forward with the law firm, your attorneys will then begin preparing all evidence to file a legal claim. Opening the case in court is just one of the first steps in the process, but it does not mean that you have to go to trial. In fact, in many personal injury, promises ability, medical malpractice, or mass tort cases, these issues are resolved outside of court and through settlement agreements.
At Morgan and Morgan, our lawyers have extensive experience in pursuing justice through both settlements and in court if necessary, so we are prepared to fight as much as necessary to get you the compensation you deserve.
