5 Signs You Have a Winning Personal Injury Case
Sometimes, knowing is half the battle when you need the motivation to pursue a personal injury case. This can be particularly helpful when your case goes to trial and you need the peace of mind to rest easy knowing deserved compensation is on its way.
The following five signs will help you rest assured your personal injury case is a winning one.
YOUR INJURIES ARE INDISPUTABLE AND ARE VALIDATED BY MEDICAL RECORDS
When your medical reports are consistent and accurate, a personal injury case becomes even stronger. If facts are in dispute, accurate and consistent records can make the difference between a winning and losing case. When the defense side has a hard time showing reasons to doubt the medical records, a skilled personal injury attorney has an easier time proving that those injuries were negligently caused by the defendant.
After all, if the other side does not need to even address who caused the injuries because the injuries themselves are in doubt, that does not make for a winning case. When the injuries are indisputable, that is the first clear sign you may have a winning case on your hands.
A COMMON PERSONAL INJURY OFFENSE WAS COMMITTED
If it is on record that you were hit by a drunk driver or fall down a broken flight of stairs in a poorly lit room, you probably have a winning case. Personal injuries caused by negligent acts that are standard negligence point to an open and shut case. In such instances, you are likely looking at receiving economic compensation for your sustained injuries, so long as the negligent act was the cause of your injuries.
Some of the most common personal injury claims result from:
- Auto Accidents
- Slip and Falls
- On the Job Accidents

THERE IS PHOTO AND/OR VIDEO EVIDENCE OF THE ACCIDENT AND YOUR INJURIES
A picture says a thousand words, as they say, and it also says you are on your way to a winning case. When the scene of the accident and/or the resulting injuries are documented with visual evidence, don't be surprised if the insurance company or the defendant's legal team starts talking about a settlement.
YOU RECEIVE A SETTLEMENT OFFER
When the other side starts speaking the language of settling the case, it is clear your case has merit in most instances. Also, it is a sign that your attorney is doing a great job advancing your interests as well. Still, when a settlement offer comes in, your injury attorney will make sure you don't jump at the chance to accept a lowball offer.
Talk with your attorney and carefully consider their advice on whether to settle the case or to continue moving forward with the case. A lifetime of medical treatment costs millions of dollars for the many Americans who are injured in auto accidents — around 2.5 million Americans enter the emergency room each year for auto accidents — and other devastating personal injuries. While a settlement offer is a clear sign your case might be a winning one, that doesn't mean you need to sell yourself short if going to trial is a sure thing that leads to even more compensation and money damages.
