ANSWERS TO THE MOST COMMON QUESTIONS:
My case involves a school district, town or municipal entity. Does that change anything?
Yes. There will be specific notice provisions required andmuch shorter time limitations within which to bring your case. Failure to meet these requirements can meanthe claims can be barred forever. If you have reason to believethe potential defendant in your action is the school district, town or another municipal entity, please call well within 90 days of your accident so I have time to review your case and help you.
I have photographs, should I send them to you?
Yes. A picture is worth a thousand words. Your photos of the place where your accident took place, the damage to your vehicle, or your injuries are very helpful when reviewing your case. Please maintain the photographs on your computer, tablet, mobile device or online storage account and do not edit them in any way. We can look through them together and discuss your claims in more detail. Photographs can be sent via email, on a jump drive, or you can bring the photographs with you to a meeting. Where possible, it is helpful to have them in advance on our in person meeting so we can be efficient.
Is it okay to post about my injuries or the accident on social media?
No, it is not recommended. Once you put materials online in any form, it is difficult to maintain the privacy of your communications. It is difficult to argue that the information was meant to be private when most online posts ultimately share the information with countless others. If you have already done it, do not change or alter posts in any way. If you have not posted, don’t. Check and ensure that your online account privacy settings are on.
My injury isn’t permanent or I don’t know if my injury will be permanent, does that mean I don’t have a case?
No. Your injury is life changing to you. Just because your injury is not permanent, or you don’t know whether it will be permanent does not mean you have no case.
