Compensation for Personal Injury Cases

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 Union, 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: People have a moral "duty of care" in everyday life. Proving that 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 his or her customers from harm, like fixing a hole in the floor or faulty wiring. The same goes for truck drivers, giant corporations, and others.
  • Breach: Another step for proving negligence is showing how the negligent party "breached" their duty of care. An example would be a driver who 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 what caused the breach, like a landlord not salting a metal fire escape. This is the negligent act that breaches any expected duty of care.
  • Damages: Finally, there has to be financial repercussions. Financial harm may include rehabilitation, lost wages, and other expenses. Burger Law's Union personal injury attorneys 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 or legal assistance. Burger Law has a strong track record for providing just that and winning cases.
