There comes a time when you need someone in your corner that you can trust. Our time came when we knew we needed the advice and counsel of an attorney. The day we walked into Zinda Law Group we knew we were covered.
I did not know what to do. I had never been hurt in a wreck before and this was a major accident that was not my fault. I reached out to Zinda Law Group and they were fantastic, answered all my questions, got me help immediately, and took care of everything!!
There is a reason why this law firm has a 5 star rating. My experience with personal injury attorney Joe Caputo and all of the staff at Zinda Law Group has been excellent... I would definitely recommend Zinda Law Group.
Maria Ciara-Former Client
This is a really great firm! They settled my personal injury case in a year. Throughout the whole process, they were keeping in touch with me and helping me get the best treatment possible. They honestly know what they are doing. It was a pleasure working with these guys.
Everyone was so professional and was very interested in helping me with my issues. They were very upfront and honest about what I could expect.
I contacted Zinda Law Group after getting nowhere on my own with a personal injury case. I am so thankful I did. They took it off my plate and handled everything from appointments, to phone calls, and emails.
Most Common Causes of Shooting Accidents
A gun accident can be a life-changing event. Unfortunately, most shooting accidents occur because of someone’s carelessness or negligence. For example, improper storage of guns by homeowners can lead to children getting access to firearms. Guns are also misfired while cleaning or hunting, especially when the safety is not on.
Alcohol is also involved in many gun accidents. Celebratory gunfire, while perhaps fun, can be incredibly dangerous. It is also possible a gun accident happens not because of the user’s fault, but because of defective design or mechanical failure.
Why Should I Hire an Attorney?
While you don’t have to hire a lawyer, working with one has many benefits. A lawyer can help maximize your payout in a lawsuit. You can bet the other side will have experts handling their trial, so not hiring one will make you the underdog. Lawyers have experience with similar cases in the past and are trained in negotiation. If you don’t hire a lawyer, you will have to spend the time getting up to speed for your lawsuit, while your opponent can rely on an attorney’s existing experience.
Additionally, a lawyer can help increase your potential compensation by better estimating your damages. Lawyers can compare your accident to similar past cases and arrive at a more accurate damage estimate, which can turn into a higher payout.
Finally, the aftermath of an accident is an emotional, stressful experience. Having one more person on your team can help alleviate the emotional burden. Hiring a lawyer will ensure someone advocates for your best interests.
