Proving a Personal Injury Claim

A personal injury claim does not automatically arise because another person’s actions resulted in your injury. The claim must show that your injury was caused by the negligence or reckless conduct of someone. To succeed in a personal injury case, you must prove all the elements of negligence:

  1. The person whose conduct resulted in your injury owed you a duty of care to act reasonably in the circumstances to avoid causing you harm.
  2. The person whose conduct resulted in your injury breached their duty of care. Their actions were below the standard expected of them in the circumstances.
  3. The breach of their duty caused your injury.
  4. You suffered actual damages.

In some personal injury cases, there may be more than one party legally responsible for your injury. Having an experienced personal injury attorney in such circumstances is invaluable. In addition to establishing the legal elements of negligence, your personal injury attorney can also identify all legally responsible parties and ensure that they are all held accountable for your damages.

What Can I Get Compensation For?

A personal injury victim may be entitled to compensation for their economic and noneconomic losses. The compensation you are entitled to will depend on several factors including:

  • The severity of your injury
  • Your age
  • Any fault attributed to you
  • Past compensation for similar injuries

Your damages may include both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are tangible losses like medical expenses and lost wages that can be quantified objectively. Non-economic damages cover intangible losses like pain and suffering.
