Proving Your Personal Injury Claim 

As the person bringing the claim, or the “plaintiff,” you are the one responsible for proving your case. 

There are several key elements you must prove to have a successful personal injury claim: 

  • Injury: First, you must prove that you sustained some type of injury.
  • Damages: Next, you must prove that your injury resulted in damages, or various losses, such as medical expenses, lost income, or pain and suffering. 
  • Duty of Care: You’ll also need to prove that the defendant owed you a duty of care, meaning they had a legal responsibility to take and/or avoid certain actions in order to prevent foreseeable harm. 
  • Breach: Once you have established the duty of care, you must prove that the defendant breached this duty, typically by acting negligently or wrongfully (i.e., illegally) in some way.
  • Causation: Lastly, you must show that there is a causal relationship between the defendant’s negligent or wrongful conduct and your injuries.

Why You Should Hire a Personal Injury Attorney Soon

Hiring a personal injury attorney immediately after an accident is crucial for the preservation of key evidence that can significantly influence the outcome of your claim. An experienced lawyer can take swift action to secure vital evidence before it is lost or destroyed, such as surveillance footage or physical remnants at the accident scene.

Additionally, obtaining statements from witnesses while their memories are fresh can provide invaluable insights into the events leading up to and during the accident, bolstering your case. Lawyers are also well-versed in the procedural deadlines and statute of limitations relevant to your claim. Their expertise ensures that all necessary documents are filed accurately and on time, preventing you from inadvertently forfeiting your right to seek compensation due to missed deadlines. Early legal intervention thus plays a pivotal role in building a compelling case and enhancing your chances of securing a favorable outcome.
