A personal injury claim can be brought on the grounds of negligence, breach of statutory duty, or breach of contract. Negligence is when a person or entity fails to take reasonable care to avoid causing harm to another person. Breach of statutory duty is when a person or entity fails to comply with a law or regulation that is meant to protect people from harm. Breach of contract is when a person or entity does not fulfill the terms of an agreement that was made between two parties.

A contingency fee is a type of fee arrangement in which a lawyer agrees to take a case on the condition that they will only be paid if they win or settle the case. If the lawyer is successful, they will receive a percentage of the award or settlement as their fee.

When choosing a personal injury lawyer, it is important to consider the lawyer’s experience, reputation, and track record. You should also make sure that the lawyer is knowledgeable about the area of law relevant to your case. Additionally, you should feel comfortable communicating with the lawyer and confident that they will be able to handle your case effectively. At The Bourassa Law Group, you will have attorneys with over 30 years of experience working for the defense and insurance companies taking those skills and fighting for you.

If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence or recklessness, you should contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. A personal injury lawyer can help you understand your legal rights, evaluate your case, and provide guidance on how to proceed with a claim. The at fault party will likely have an entire insurance company working on their side. Shouldn’t you have someone on your side too?

  1. Slip and Fall Accidents
