DO I HAVE A CASE?
If you suffered an injury because of another party’s negligence, you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. This requires proving the four elements of negligence, which include:
DUTY OF CARE
This refers to the duty to exercise the same level of care that a reasonable person would if he or she were in a similar situation. For instance, doctors have a duty to provide the same level of care that a similarly trained medical professional would provide if he or she were in a similar situation.
BREACH OF DUTY OF CARE
Once you establish the duty of care for the situation, you need to prove that the defendant did not uphold this obligation.
This means there must be a link between the breach of duty of care and your injuries. In other words, you must show that your injury was directly caused by the breach of duty of care.
The reason people file personal injury claims is that they suffered damages. This could include medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning potential, and pain and suffering
Our personal injury attorneys know how to conduct a thorough investigation to compile the evidence you need to have a chance to prove the four elements of negligence.
