Personal injury cases take on many forms – from car wrecks, to construction site accidents, to slip and falls. If you have been hurt through the negligent action (or inaction) of another, you are entitled to recover your financial losses and other damages. In order to make a valid claim and maximize your recovery, it is best to partner with a qualified personal injury attorney. Your attorney will explain the process to you and put you at ease, so you do not feel overwhelmed. Our office has the experience you need for a successful personal injury claim and will start by looking over your case to make sure you have all of the required elements for a successful outcome.
The components necessary for a personal injury case are:
- That the other party owed you a duty of care. A good example is a car accident case, where all motorists owe each other the duty to drive safely.
- That the duty of care has been breached. In the car example case, this can be by speeding, disregarding traffic signals, texting and driving, or driving while under the influence.
- The breach of duty caused the accident.
- The victim suffered damages as a result.
Every personal injury case is different, but a solid foundation for each matter does include the above components. Your attorney will go over the facts and circumstances of how the accident happened to identify these elements. Once you have a clear picture of what happened and who caused the accident, a claim for damages can be made. Negligent drivers, doctors who do not meet the medical standard of care, property owners, and any other person or entity that owes you a duty of care can be liable for an accident. The approach we take is individualized to your specific facts and needs, as we work with you to develop an effective strategy.
