Do I need an attorney?

While you are not required to hire a lawyer, if you wish to take legal action against the party who caused you harm, it is certainly in your best interests to do so. Our law firm can quickly assess the strength of your case and determine if taking legal action is in your best interests.

Will I have to go to court?

Depending on your case, you may or may not have to go to court. However, you should know that the majority of personal injury cases are resolved through settlements.

Do I have to file a lawsuit immediately?

You may need to file a lawsuit right after you sustain an injury. A knowledgeable attorney can explain to you the time period within which you must file your suit to present your rights. After this time passes, you cannot take legal action.

What kind of compensation can I receive?

The various items may include past and future medical expenses, past and future lost income, and general damages for loss of mobility, inconvenience, physical pains, loss of life pleasures and health.

Am I guaranteed compensation?

Contrary to popular belief, you are not guaranteed, and you will need to prove your rights to recover compensation.

Finding An Attorney

It is important that you hire the right personal injury attorney. Do not hire a friend or relative simply because he or she is an attorney. John A. Caputo & Associates, P.C., is proud to dedicate our practice to assisting injury victims.
