Proving a Personal Injury Claim

To get compensation for a personal injury, you must show that your injury was caused by the negligence or reckless conduct of someone. To be successful in a personal injury case, you must prove all the elements of negligence. You must show that:

  1. The person whose conduct resulted in your injury owed you a duty of care. Who owes you a duty of care will depend on the circumstances. For instance, if you are in an area of a store that has just recently been mopped, the store has a duty to put a warning in the area to let customers know that the floor may be slippery;
  2. The person whose conduct resulted in your injury breached their duty of care. In the example above, a breach of that duty would be the failure to warn their customers of the potential danger in the area;
  3. The breach of their duty caused your injury; and
    You suffered actual damages.

While some personal injury cases can be attributed to one responsible party, sometimes there may be more than one party legally responsible for your injury. This is where having a personal injury attorney is especially helpful. In addition to establishing the legal elements of negligence, a personal injury attorney can also identify all legally responsible parties and file a lawsuit against all of them to recover the full amount of compensation that you deserve.

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

There are different types of personal injury and we handle all types of cases, including:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents – This covers all types of transportation-related accidents including bicycle accidents, car accidents, truck accidents, train accidents, and pedestrian accidents.
  • Brain Injury – According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an injury that affects how the brain works and it could be anything from a mild concussion to a severe TBI. TBI’s can lead to serious life-long health problems or even death. Brain injuries can be caused by accidents including errors by medical practitioners.
  • Premises Liability – When the condition of a premises causes you injury, an attorney can help you recover compensation from the owners of the premises.
  • Wrongful death – When a loved one dies due to the negligence or misconduct of someone else, a personal injury attorney can help families pursue compensation for the death of their loved one from the person responsible.

Not every case requires that you go to court but personal injury cases are usually contested. Even where you agree to a settlement, you will need a personal injury attorney by your side to help you understand the complexities of liability and show the responsible parties that you are ready to fight to get the compensation you deserve.
