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 Martinsville, IL, 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: People have a moral "duty of care" in everyday life. Proving that 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 patrons from harm, like fixing a hole in the floor or faulty wiring. The same goes for truck drivers, big corporations, and others.
  • Breach: Another step in proving negligence is showing how an entity "breached" their duty of care. A good example is a driver that 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 doing so.
  • Causation: Causation is what caused the breach, like a landlord not salting a metal fire escape. This is the negligent act that breaches any expected duty of care.
  • Damages: Finally, there has to be financial repercussions. Financial harm might include lost wages, medical bills, and other expenses. Our Martinsville personal injury lawyers will consider short and long-term damages for our clients.

It is important to contact a skilled 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.
