  • How Do I Know if I Have a Personal Injury Case?

    • If you were injured because of the negligence of another person or entity, you most likely have a personal injury case. The specific elements of a personal injury case involve proving that:

    • 1) A duty of care was owed to the person injured plaintiff

    • 2) The negligent party violated their duty of care

    • 3) The person injured sustained damages

    • 4) The damages incurred were caused by the direct or indirect actions of the negligent party. If you are unsure if you meet these criteria, our team can inform you of your rights during a free consultation.

  • How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

    • The goal of a personal injury case is to compensate the victim or their family for losses sustained after an accident or injury. Therefore, the value of your case will be more or less related to the amount of damages you have incurred. A more serious injury will involve higher medical bills, more missed time at work, and more severe physical/emotional trauma, whereas a less serious injury, should not incur such heavy damages. However, you should not accept any settlement from the insurance company before speaking with an attorney who can give you a better understanding of what your case may be worth.

  • "As a practicing physician, I have always had a healthy respect for attorneys. I was impressed with your intelligence, energy, and expertise. That is why you were the first and only attorney I sought out when I had my accident."

    - Dr. Frieden

  • "Mr. Donnelly came highly recommended to me, and he lived up to his reputation and then some."

    - Michael Bryne, Esq.
