Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Victims: People who have sustained serious injuries as a result of an accident, medical malpractice, product defect, workplace incident, or any other incident caused by someone else’s negligence or intentional wrongdoing.

  2. Family Members: In some cases, immediate family members of individuals who have died or become incapacitated due to serious injuries may be eligible to pursue a serious injury claim on behalf of the injured person. These claims are typically referred to as wrongful death claims or claims for loss of consortium.

  3. Legal Guardians: If the injured person is a minor or lacks the mental capacity to handle legal matters independently, their legal guardians, such as parents or appointed guardians, can file a serious injury claim on their behalf.

  4. Representatives of Deceased Individuals: If someone dies as a result of serious injuries, their estate representative or executor may pursue a serious injury claim on behalf of the deceased person’s estate.
