Compensation for Personal Injury Cases

It is important to prove negligence in a personal injury case. You may be able to get a quick and easy insurance payout (settlement). This can be tempting. However, it is important for our Benld, IL, injury attorneys to make sure your compensation is fair and justified. Here are a few ways we go about proving a claim:

  • Reasonable Duty of Care: People have a moral "duty of care" in everyday life. Proving there is a duty of care is a good main step in proving negligence after an accident. For example, it is a business owner's "duty" to protect his or her customers from harm, such as fixing protruding nails or a dangerous stairway. The same goes for truck drivers, big corporations, and others.
  • Breach: The next step for proving negligence is showing how the negligent party "breached" their duty of care. A good example is a driver that ignores a stop sign and crashes into another car or pedestrian. The driver knew they were supposed to stop, but breached their duty of care by not stopping.
  • Causation: Causation is simply what caused the breach, like a driver knowing they're going too fast. This is the negligent act that breaches the duty of care.
  • Damages: Lastly, there must be financial damages. Financial harm may include lost wages, medical bills, and other expenses. Burger Law's Benld personal injury attorneys will consider short and long-term damages for our clients.

It is important to contact a skilled PI lawyer if you need (or do not know if you need) help or legal assistance. Burger Law has a strong track record for providing just that and winning cases.
