Damages for Personal Injury Cases

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 Vandalia, IL, 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 main step in proving negligence after an accident. For example, 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: Another step in proving negligence is showing how the negligent party "breached" their duty of care. A good example is a driver that blows a red light 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 driver knowing they're going too fast. This is the negligent act that breaches any expected duty of care.
  • Damages: Finally, there must be financial repercussions. Financial harm might include lost wages, medical bills, and other expenses. Burger Law's Vandalia personal injury attorneys will consider short and long-term damages for our clients.

It is important to contact a qualified personal injury attorney 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.
