Should I Always Hire a Lawyer for My Claim Even if My Injury Seems Minor?
No injury or case is too small to be taken seriously because no one can predict how an injury will affect their overall quality of life until they are experiencing it. Because the way adrenaline is released during dangerous situations affects our bodies, accident victims might not be fully aware of the extent of their injuries right away. Some injuries, like concussions, might not reveal themselves with symptoms until a bit of time after the accident takes place. If you may have been injured in an accident of any kind, it is crucial that you seek emergency medical care or a follow-up with your primary physician. When your injuries are taken care of, a lawyer can help you document them and file for compensation accordingly.
While a lawyer can almost always increase the strength of your case, make it easier to file in a timely manner, and assist you with the more stressful aspects of the litigation process, not every claim requires a lawyer. To actually add value to your claim, a lawyer must be able to increase your total take-home amount after all fees are paid to greater than you would have settled for independently. A good lawyer will make potential clients aware of this and be honest if they do not think their assistance will actually add any value to their personal injury claims. If you are not sure if you require the representation provided by a lawyer for your injury case, call our office to arrange for a free consultation or review your legal options.

What can NOVA Injury Law do to Assist Me With a Slip and Fall Accident?
The law requires that property owners maintain a safe property for visitors. Despite the clear standard to which property owners are supposed to be held, safety isn’t always guaranteed everywhere we go. In fact, property owners are often found to have deficiencies in their premises that are unsafe, and these may lead to injury for workers or visitors.
Many accidents, including slip & fall cases, usually arise because the owner of a property didn’t realize the danger or because systems were not put into place to fix a potentially dangerous situation. While the property owner may not have intended for someone to get hurt, an injury claim can be pursued so long as the owner acted negligently. The question to be asked is whether or not the area was reasonably safe for a visitor.
If you have been injured because of an unsafe business or public space, you should contact our team to discuss the details of your case. We look forward to explaining more about Occupiers Liability law and reviewing the insurance coverage in place at the home or business through which your claim will be pursued.
How can NOVA Injury Law Help Me With a Medical Malpractice Case?
People place a great deal of trust in healthcare providers and don’t seek medical care expecting something to go wrong. Unfortunately, there can be a variety of errors or types of negligence that occur throughout the healthcare system, including surgical errors, misdiagnoses, treatment, and testing errors, among a variety of others – even when people are trying their best. Mistakes made by health professionals can result in some of the most severe injuries or illnesses possible. In the worst of cases, it may even result in the death of a patient that could have recovered from the initial concern that brought them to the doctor in the first place. When this happens, people are often left overwhelmed, distressed, and uncertain of what their options are.
At NOVA Injury Law, our experienced lawyers are dedicated to gathering, analyzing, and presenting complex medical evidence to insurers and before the courts. We help patients who have been injured and bring claims on behalf of a patient’s loved ones if the patient has passed away.

Even beyond the physical suffering that their accident might bring, many victims suffer various psychological effects from the incident, including generalized anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, a severe fear of hospitals, or a change from their regular personality. It is important that injury victims receive fair compensation for these psychological effects in addition to their physical injuries; our law firm will fight to maximize compensation for victims and their families, backed by strong medical evidence in addition to our experienced legal team.
