Compensation for Personal Injury Claims

One of the important factors in a personal injury case is determining negligence. It may be tempting to accept a settlement after an accident from an big insurance company or the negligent parties involved. However, it is important for our Columbia, 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: People 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 example, it is a business owner's "duty" to protect their patrons from harm, like 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. An example would be a driver who ignores a stop sign 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 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 rehabilitation, lost wages, and other expenses. Our Columbia personal injury lawyers will consider short and long-term damages for our clients.

It is important to contact a skilled personal injury 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.
