Damages for Personal Injury Claims

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 Paris, 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 the main step in proving negligence after an incident. For instance, it is a business owner's "duty" to protect their customers from harm, like fixing faulty wiring or a loose handrail. The same goes for truck drivers, giant corporations, and others.
  • Breach: The next step in proving negligence is showing how a person or entity "breached" their duty of care. An example would be 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 store owner knowingly ignoring a dangerous situation. This is the negligent act that breaches the duty of care.
  • Damages: Finally, there must be financial damages. Financial harm may include medical bills, lost time at work due to an injury, and other expenses. Our Paris personal injury lawyers will consider short and long-term damages for our clients.

It is important to contact a skilled 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.
