Damages for Personal Injury Cases

It is important to prove negligence in a personal injury case. 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 St. James, 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: People have a moral "duty of care" in everyday life. Proving that there is a duty of care is a good first step in proving negligence after an incident. For example, it is a business owner's "duty" to protect his or her patrons from harm, like fixing faulty wiring or a loose handrail. The same goes for truck drivers, big corporations, and others.
  • Breach: Another step in proving negligence is showing how a person or 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 what caused the breach, like a driver knowing they're going too fast. This is the negligent act that breaches the duty of care.
  • Damages: Lastly, there has to be financial repercussions. Financial harm may include rehabilitation, lost wages, and other expenses. Our St. James personal injury lawyers will consider short and long-term damages for our clients.

It is important to contact a qualified PI 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.
