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 Winchester, IL, 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 first step in proving negligence after an incident. For instance, it is a business owner's "duty" to protect their patrons from harm, such as fixing faulty wiring or a loose handrail. The same goes for truck drivers, big corporations, and others.
  • Breach: The next step for proving negligence is showing how a person or entity "breached" their duty of care. A good example is a driver that ignores a stop sign and crashes into another car or pedestrian. The driver knew they were supposed to stop, but breached their duty of care by not stopping.
  • Causation: Causation is 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 damages. Financial harm may include lost wages, medical bills, and other expenses. Our Winchester personal injury lawyers 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) help or legal assistance. Burger Law has a strong track record for providing just that and winning cases.
