Damages 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 Lincoln County, MO, injury attorneys to make sure your compensation is fair and justified. Here are a few ways we go about proving a claim:

  • 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 main step in proving negligence after an incident. For instance, it is a business owner's "duty" to protect his or her patrons from harm, like fixing protruding nails or a dangerous stairway. The same goes for truck drivers, giant 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. 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 any expected duty of care.
  • Damages: Lastly, there has to be financial repercussions. Financial harm might include lost wages, medical bills, and other expenses. Our Lincoln County personal injury lawyers will consider short and long-term damages for our clients.

It is important to contact a qualified personal injury attorney 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.
