Compensation for Personal Injury Claims

One of the important factors in a personal injury case is determining negligence. 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 Pana, 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: People 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 example, 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 the negligent party "breached" their duty of care. A good example is a driver that 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 doing so.
  • Causation: Causation is simply what caused the breach, like a driver knowing they're going too fast. This is the negligent act that breaches any expected duty of care.
  • Damages: Lastly, there has to be financial damages. Financial harm may include rehabilitation, lost wages, and other expenses. Burger Law's Pana 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.
