Compensation for Personal Injury Cases

One of the important factors in a personal injury case is determining negligence. You may be able to get a quick and easy insurance payout (settlement). This can be tempting. However, it is important for our Breese, IL, 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 there is a duty of care is a good main step in proving negligence after an incident. For example, it is a business owner's "duty" to protect their patrons from harm, such as fixing faulty wiring or a loose handrail. The same goes for truck drivers, giant corporations, and others.
  • Breach: Another step in proving negligence is showing how a person or entity "breached" their duty of care. An example would be a driver that blows a red light 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 repercussions. Financial harm might include lost wages, medical bills, and other expenses. Our Breese 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) legal representation. Burger Law has a strong track record for providing just that and winning cases.
