I am aware of an unsafe situation at my job site. What can I do?
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) governs work
safety and enforces various laws governing training, welfare, security,
and whistleblower status for employees in the United States. If you are
aware of an unsafe situation at work, you can report it to OSHA. It is
important that you speak with an attorney from Lenahan Law Firm first
to safeguard your rights and interests.
Is my case worth anything?
There are a number of variables that need to be taken into consideration
when determining the amount of compensation that you may be eligible to
receive. Our firm can help determine the severity of your injuries, prove
who is liable for the injuries, and convey the amount of pain and suffering
that you are going through in order to establish the potential value of
your case. We can review your medical expenses and out-of-pocket expenses
as well and pursue a claim to compensate for these losses.
Will I have to go to court?
As with any legal situation, there is a possibility that you will have
to go to court if you file a claim; however, almost all personal injury
and civil cases are settled out of court. When you work with our firm,
we can push for the highest amount of monetary compensation available
inside or outside of a courtroom. Our attorneys have the skills to litigate
a case at trial or settle it without setting foot in a courtroom.
How long will the case last?
Each case is different, and the specific factors of your case can play
a role in how long it will take to resolve the case. Most claims are settled
within a few months to a little over a year. Some cases can last longer,
but each situation is different, and your case will vary. To get a better
idea of how long your case may last, it is important that you speak with
an attorney regarding your situation.
Do I need an attorney?
Yes! You should never pursue compensation or a proceeding in the North
Dakota justice system alone! The laws and regulations governing injuries
and liability can be difficult to understand, and without the representation
of an attorney, you may be facing an uphill battle and you could make
a mistake that would be detrimental to your case. In order to protect
yourself and your rights, it is vital that you speak with a member from our team.
What are my rights after an accident?
After an accident, especially one that was caused by another person's
reckless, illegal, or wrongful behavior, you have the right to pursue
compensation. Additionally, you have the right to work with an attorney
before speaking with insurance companies, and it is important that you
contact our firm right away.
