When Is It Worth Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney for My Case?
Hiring a personal injury lawyers may be the right move for you, whether your case involves significant injuries and/or property damages. Even if you were involved in a fender-bender and only suffered minor injuries, you can benefit from hiring a personal injury attorney for your case. In many cases, minor injuries can linger and grow into a much more troublesome issue. It is important to take action as soon as possible to get the justice you deserve for your injuries.
What Do I Need to Prove to Sue Someone for Negligence?
Most personal injury cases are based on negligence. Personal injury cases are civil actions and thus place the burden of proof on the victim. To prove that someone was negligent, you will need to demonstrate that the defendant owed a duty of care to you in some capacity (such as a store owner that is expected to keep a safe environment for shoppers) and that their duty of care to you was breached because they failed to take actions necessary to prevent a hazardous situation from happening or to correct it before anyone gets hurt.
Finally, you will need to demonstrate that their negligent or reckless actions resulted in a dangerous situation that led to your accident, and that the accident caused losses and injuries. For example, slipping and falling at a grocery store and breaking a bone can qualify as a personal injury action based on negligence.
