Damages 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 Hannibal, MO, injury attorneys to make sure your compensation is fair and justified. 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 there is a duty of care is the main step in proving negligence after an accident. For instance, it is a business owner's "duty" to protect his or her customers from harm, such as fixing protruding nails or a dangerous stairway. The same goes for truck drivers, big 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 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 stopping.
  • Causation: Causation is 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 has to be financial repercussions. Financial harm might include rehabilitation, lost wages, and other expenses. Burger Law's Hannibal personal injury attorneys will consider short and long-term damages for our clients.

It is important to contact a skilled PI 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.
