How Can Hiring The Right Personal Injury Attorney Help Me Win My Case?
If you’ve been hurt in an accident and are seeking monetary compensation in a case with the potential for a significant settlement or jury verdict, no decision will be as important as which lawyer you choose to handle your case. If you don’t think it matters, ask yourself this: How many Superbowls do you think the Patriots would have won without Brady and Belichick?
For serious cases of high monetary value, or complicated cases, like medical malpractice, industrial, maritime, trucking and product defect cases, the difference in lawyers can mean the difference between winning and losing or getting a low settlement or a high settlement.
Vet them accordingly. If a lawyer cannot answer these questions to your satisfaction, keep looking.
Don’t Just Take Our Word For It
In a recent medical malpractice suit on behalf of my late husband, Ben and Taylor knew the minute intricacies of the case and exhibited incredible compassion amidst the impact of the loss of my husband and the father of our children. Throughout the process they were responsive to my many questions and were patient and clear all along the way helping to prepare me for what to expect. Thankfully they did the heavy lifting to bring the case to a settlement. I am forever grateful. Ben and Taylor treated me with respect and care and not as a faceless case.
How Long Do I Have To File A Personal Injury Claim In Maine?
The Statute of Limitations for personal injury actions in Maine is six years from the date of injury (tolled for minors until age 18). This is one of the longest statutes of limitations of any State in the country. However, it is never a good idea to wait, because witness memories fade and important evidence such as the condition of the accident scene, crash vehicles, video or audio surveillance, or damaged equipment and machinery, may be lost if not secured promptly following an incident. The investigation of the claim should begin almost immediately following any serious accident.
Note that different deadlines may apply to personal injury claims in Portland against the State of Maine (365-day notice requirement) or Federal Government (2-year notice of claim deadline). Also, the Statute of Limitations for medical malpractice actions in Maine is three years from the date of the alleged malpractice event.
