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 Kirkwood, 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 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 his or her 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 in proving negligence is showing how an entity "breached" their duty of care. A good example is a driver who ignores a stop sign 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 store owner knowingly ignoring a dangerous situation. This is the negligent act that breaches the duty of care.
  • Damages: Finally, there must be financial repercussions. Financial harm might include lost wages, medical bills, and other expenses. Our Kirkwood personal injury lawyers will consider short and long-term damages for our clients.

It is important to contact a qualified 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.
