Compensation for Personal Injury Claims

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 Sikeston, MO, injury attorneys to make sure your compensation is fair and justified. 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 main step in proving negligence after an accident. For instance, it is a business owner's "duty" to protect their customers from harm, such as fixing a hole in the floor or faulty wiring. The same goes for truck drivers, giant corporations, and others.
  • Breach: Another step in proving negligence is showing how the negligent party "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 stopping.
  • 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 repercussions. Financial harm may include rehabilitation, lost wages, and other expenses. Burger Law's Sikeston personal injury attorneys 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.
