Compensation for Personal Injury Cases

It is important to prove negligence in a personal injury case. 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 Dalton City, 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: People have a moral "duty of care" in everyday life. Proving there is a duty of care is a good first step in proving negligence after an accident. For instance, it is a business owner's "duty" to protect their customers from harm, like fixing faulty wiring or a loose handrail. 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 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 doing so.
  • Causation: Causation is simply what caused the breach, like a store owner knowingly ignoring a dangerous situation. This is the negligent act that breaches the duty of care.
  • Damages: Lastly, there must be financial damages. Financial harm may include medical bills, lost time at work due to an injury, and other expenses. Burger Law's Dalton City personal injury attorneys 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.
