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 Clayton, MO, injury attorneys to make sure your compensation is fair. Here are a few objectives for proving you have a legitimate case:

  • 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 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 for proving negligence is showing how an entity "breached" their duty of care. An example would be a driver who 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 landlord not salting a metal fire escape. This is the negligent act that breaches the duty of care.
  • Damages: Lastly, there must be financial damages. Financial harm may include rehabilitation, lost wages, and other expenses. Burger Law's Clayton personal injury attorneys will consider short and long-term damages for our clients.

It is important to contact a skilled personal injury attorney 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.
