Your personal injury case hinges on several critical factors that must be proven. These factors are not only what determine if you are successful, but they also may determine the total compensation you receive.
What are they? They are the elements of negligence. These elements are defined as duty, breach, causation, and damages.
To win your lawsuit, you must establish that the defendant (the party responsible for your injuries) was negligent, by proving the following:
A personal injury case is a lawsuit where you are suing the party responsible for their actions and holding them accountable. Within that lawsuit, you are seeking damages, which is compensation for your financial losses, pain, and suffering.
Personal injury cases come in all shapes and sizes, including car accidents, slip and fall injuries, or intentional acts.
To prove the elements of negligence, you will need to go through several steps, which include:
After an injury, you may not be able to complete a lot of these steps, and that is okay. Completing as many as you can or even just one will help. Also, speaking with an attorney, regardless of what evidence you have, is important. An attorney may be able to gather evidence for you and strengthen your case.
