Compensation for Personal Injury Claims

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 Bonne Terre, MO, injury attorneys to make sure your compensation is fair. Here are a few ways we go about proving a claim:

  • Reasonable Duty of Care: We as a society have a moral "duty of care" in everyday life. Proving that there is a duty of care is the first step in proving negligence after an accident. For instance, it is a business owner's "duty" to protect his or her patrons from harm, such as fixing protruding nails or a dangerous stairway. The same goes for truck drivers, giant corporations, and others.
  • Breach: The next step for proving negligence is showing how an entity "breached" their duty of care. A good example is a driver who blows a red light and crashes into another car or pedestrian. They know they were supposed to stop, but breached their duty of care by not doing so.
  • Causation: Causation is simply what caused the breach, like a landlord not salting a metal fire escape. This is the negligent act that breaches the duty of care.
  • Damages: Finally, there has to be financial damages. Financial harm might include rehabilitation, lost wages, and other expenses. Our Bonne Terre personal injury lawyers will consider short and long-term damages for our clients.

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