If an injury was caused by someone else, due to their negligent, reckless or intentional behavior, you can sue them for financial compensation. There are many accidents and situations, caused by another person, agency, company or other entity, which can apply to a personal injury lawsuit. Injuries, caused by another’s wrongdoing, can result from car accidents, battery, construction site accidents, dangerous/defective premises, defective products, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse/neglect, dog bites, slip and falls and other situations which could and should have been avoided if the responsible party had taken care to prevent the situation which caused the injury.
When you have sustained an injury that was caused by no fault of your own, you should immediately get medical attention. You should document as much information as possible, concerning the accident, or other situation, which resulted in your injury. For instance, if you are in a car accident, get all the information possible about the other driver and any witnesses, take pictures if you can. Gather any official documentation, like medical records and police reports. This type of documentation can help you with your pursuit of justice and to recover compensation.
If you are unsure of whether you have a valid claim for compensation, you should consult a lawyer who concentrates their practice on personal injury cases, just like yours.
When someone pursues a personal injury lawsuit, there are a few things which are required to successfully recover compensation (in other words “Win their case”). The first thing that is taken into consideration is if the person, company or other entity, had a duty to take some level of care to ensure you were not injured. For example, if you trespass on another person’s property and are injured, that person is not responsible for your injuries. However, if you slip and fall, because the person who mopped the floor was negligent by not placing a Wet Floor sign to warn people, then that person is responsible. If the law requires in a situation that a person should not be negligent (careless) in regard to others, then it must be proven that those at fault were negligent, reckless or engaged in intentional behavior which resulted in the injury, in order to recover compensation.
