Was I a Victim of Negligence?
Negligence comes in many forms, and the key to your case is proving
that your injury was caused by someone acting negligently - failing to
provide a reasonable amount of care to prevent injuries.
How to define negligence in your case depends on the specific personal
injury case. If you were hurt in a car accident, was the other driver
running a red light or texting while driving? If so, the other party
In a medical malpractice case, faulty medical
equipment could mean the hospital or manufacturer can be found at fault.
Negligence in the workplace could mean that you should be owed more in
workers’ compensation than the company is willing to give you.
What Does Handling a Personal Injury Lawsuit Involve?
Gathering evidence and proving your case can be a long and stressful
ordeal, and we’re here to take the most stressful elements out of your
hands. Depending on how complex your case is, filing a lawsuit can
possibly take many months. Your Morgan & Morgan attorney conducts a
thorough investigation, talking to witnesses and working with experts to
get the details they need to get you a hefty settlement.
Once the investigation is done, your attorney drafts a complaint and
files it in court. Your case is then in a discovery process, where your
attorney can conduct a deposition, questioning witnesses and presenting
Many cases get settled before trial, where the party at fault offers
compensation for you. Your attorney can judge if the settlement is fair,
or they can decide to present your case to a jury. Our Lexington lawyers
have decades of experience as trial attorneys and have no problem taking
your case as far as they have to so you get your fair share.
What Is My Case Worth?
The specific number you can get in a settlement depends on how severe
your injury is and how negligent or reckless the other party acted. That
can range from the thousands all the way to the high millions. You
simply won’t know without contacting us.
Some things you can receive compensation for include:
Medical Expenses: Courts award compensation for past and future
medical bills, as well as costs not covered by insurance, such as
Lost Wages or Income: If you’ve been forced to miss work with your
injury you can recover lost wages.
Pain and Suffering: It’s possible to be awarded compensation for
both physical pain and emotional suffering caused by someone’s negligent
Punitive Damages: If an injury was caused by reckless behavior, it’s
possible to receive punitive damages, which are meant as punishment for
the wrongdoer to discourage others from being as reckless.
How Much Do I Pay For an Attorney?
Until your case is won, nothing. Our lawyers work on a contingency-fee
basis, so we only receive a fee when we get you your settlement, that
fee usually being a percentage of the compensation you recover. Until
then, you don’t bother with hourly fees and we work tirelessly to win
