Determining If You Have Grounds for a Case
Before bringing a personal injury claim, our attorneys can work with you to help determine if you are entitled to recover compensation.
To have grounds for a personal injury case, you must be able to prove the following four elements:
- Duty of Care: You must be able to prove that another person, company, or entity owed you a duty of care. This means that they had a legal responsibility to act with reasonable caution and/or care to prevent foreseeable injury.
- Breach: Next, you must prove that the other party breached the duty of care. This might involve proving that the other party acted negligently, recklessly, wrongfully, or with intent to cause you injury and/or harm.
- Causation: To be eligible to file a personal injury claim, you will need to prove causation, meaning you will have to demonstrate the link between the breach of the duty of care and your injuries.
- Damages: Lastly, you must prove that you suffered damages due to the accident/your injuries. Damages can be either economic or non-economic and may include things like medical expenses, lost income, lost quality of life, and pain and suffering.
At David & Associates, Attorneys at Law, PLLC, we often work with a team of experts to help establish liability, prove the extent of your injuries, and evaluate the nature of your damages. This allows us to aggressively and effectively argue for the maximum compensation you are owed.
