Negligence and Personal Injury Cases in Kalamazoo, Michigan

In order to sue for damages for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering, you’ll need to show negligence and damages. Negligence is defined as a failure to provide an adequate level of care, or to omit in providing an adequate level of care. This charge can be more specifically applied to a variety of cases. What helps best prove negligence is clear records given to your Kalamazoo personal injury lawyer that allow him to review the facts. For instance, in a premises liability lawsuit, negligence may be a store owner’s failure to repair a stairway, or a store owner’s failure to clean spilled liquids. In the case of product liability, this could be a company’s failure to deliver on a promise or failure to adequately test a product. It would also be a company’s failure to properly warn users about a potential danger a product presents.

To prove negligence, your Kalamazoo lawyer will have to prove that the negligent party had a duty toward you. For instance, a store owner has a duty to make sure that floor is free of debris and that sidewalks are not icy for the protection of his or her customers. A doctor has a duty to provide his patients with adequate medical care that meets a certain medical standard. A company selling a product has a duty to sell a safe product that follows through on its promises to consumers.

If you can show that another party’s negligence resulted in an injury, your next step will be to show damages. Damages refer to your losses, including medical expenses, rehabilitation expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. However, it is very important that you be able to link the accident to the damages. This is why if you have suffered from prior injuries or other medical conditions, you must disclose this information to your Kalamazoo, Michigan personal injury lawyer. Many aspects must be considered in a personal injury case. Christopher Trainor & Associates are qualified accident lawyers who may be able to assist you if you’ve been hurt. Our team can help you review the facts of your case and can offer you a roadmap forward through your legal journey. Contact us today to see how Kalamazoo attorneys can stand by your side.
