Proving a Personal Injury Case
Personal injury cases arise when an individual suffers harm or injury due to the negligence or intentional actions of another party. In a successful personal injury case, the victim must prove that the negligence of the other party was the direct cause of their injuries. Proving negligence requires demonstrating the following elements:
Duty of care
The responsible party was obligated to exercise a duty of care, acting in a reasonably safe manner to prevent harm to others.
Breach of Duty
The responsible party breached this duty through unreasonable actions, recklessness or violation of the law.
The unsafe behavior of the responsible party directly resulted in harm to the victim.
The victim suffered damages as a consequence of the incident.
After establishing a clear connection between the victim’s injuries and the actions of the responsible parties, the next step is establishing the scope of the victim’s damages that warrant compensation. These damages may include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost past and future wages
- Property damage
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Pain and suffering
Proving damages requires the submission of documented evidence, including medical bills and other relevant information to highlight the impact the injuries have had on the victim’s life.
Is There an Average Settlement Amount?
Generally, to be successful on a personal injury claim, a person must prove the legal standard of negligence. Negligence consists of four elements:
- Breach of duty
A person must prove all four elements for their case. An experienced personal injury attorney can help an injured party prove the responsible party’s negligence.
