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 Maryville, IL, injury attorneys to make sure your compensation is fair. 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 a good 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, such as fixing protruding nails or a dangerous stairway. The same goes for truck drivers, big corporations, and others.
  • Breach: The next step in proving negligence is showing how the negligent party "breached" their duty of care. A good example is 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 stopping.
  • Causation: Causation is what caused the breach, like a landlord not salting a metal fire escape. This is the negligent act that breaches the duty of care.
  • Damages: Finally, there has to be financial repercussions. Financial harm might include lost wages, medical bills, and other expenses. Burger Law's Maryville personal injury attorneys will consider short and long-term damages for our clients.

It is important to contact a skilled 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.
