Determining negligence, recklessness, or any other action that can lead to your injuries is vital to helping pursue the compensation necessary to cover expenses you may have incurred following an injury. By filing a personal injury claim, you’re taking the step to seek economic damages that cover any quantifiable valuable loss and non-economic damages that cover your pain and suffering and emotional trauma.
You may need to file a personal injury claim if you’re involved in any of the following events:
Our team recognizes that there may be some claims focusing intentional and malicious actions, but the majority of personal injury lawsuits that are filed are on the basis of negligence. In these situations, the law states that the individual who is negligent breached their duty to provide care to others. For instance, if someone drives intoxicated or a property owner fails to maintain his or her grounds, they may be considered negligent if an injury results.
Filing a successful personal injury claim pertaining to negligence means being able to show that the negligence led to the accident and that there are injuries or property damage. These negligent actions can be a positive act, such as a rear-end accident, or other acts of omission, including a dog owner failing to protect people from a dog’s aggressive behavior.
Here are some tips on how to file a successful personal injury claim:
There are also types of professional negligence — such as medical malpractice, dental malpractice, and nursing home neglect — which may give rise to a personal injury claim. In other cases, negligence in manufacturing, producing, and distributing safe products to consumers may lead to a product liability claim.
