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 Shaw, MO, injury attorneys to make sure your compensation is fair. 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 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 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 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 doing so.
  • Causation: Causation is simply 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: Lastly, there must be financial repercussions. Financial harm might include lost wages, medical bills, and other expenses. Burger Law's Shaw personal injury attorneys 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. Burger Law has a strong track record for providing just that and winning cases.
