  • What are the elements to a personal injury lawsuit?

    If you have been injured in an accident due to the negligence of another, then you may be entitled to collect damages. In order to do this, you must be able to show two elements of your case:

    • The other individual involved acted negligently
    • Their negligence was a proximate cause for your injuries
  • How do I prove negligence?
    Negligence is defined as a lack of reasonable care. In order to prove that the other individual acted negligently, you must show that they owed you a duty of care and that they violated this duty of care on purpose or through an unreasonable accident or reckless action.
  • How much can I receive in a lawsuit?

    Each case is different; however, you may be able to receive compensatory damages for various financial hardships that you may have incurred due to this injury. In addition, you may be able to receive punitive damages depending on the circumstances of your case.

  • Do I really need an attorney?

    If you have been injured by the negligent acts of an individual as a part of a larger entity, then it is important to know that they will have extensive resources to utilize in order to attempt to minimize the damage to their company. An attorney on your side can work to aggressively fight the opposition that you will face in court.
