The Determination of Liability
Personal injury and wrongful death cases turn on the determination of liability. Even if you bear some of the responsibility for your injury, the defendant(s) with partial responsibility may be held liable for a portion of your losses. The attorneys at Hearn & Hearn will help assess the liability in your unique case. We will make sure that your rights are protected.
A crucial aspect of personal injury/wrongful death cases is the statute of limitations that usually applies. When someone's injury or death is due to negligence, recklessness, or intentional harm from another person or organization, there is often a time limit for taking legal action against the responsible party.
Statutes of limitation vary in length, depending in part on the type of injury. It is wise to bring your case to an experienced law firm such as Hearn & Hearn as soon as possible so that you will not miss the legal deadline to act.
