Injuries That Justify a Personal Injury Claim
Not all injuries require a claim or legal action. However, there are a few signs that filing a claim may be the right choice.
If your injury interferes with your day-to-day life, causes you to miss work, or involves substantial medical bills, you may benefit from contacting a Huntington lawyer.
Injuries that commonly fit these qualifiers include, but are not limited to:
- Ligament or muscle tears,
- Fractured bones,
- Internal bleeding,
- Organ damage,
- Spinal cord injuries,
- Traumatic brain injuries,
- Toxic chemical exposure,
- Permanent disability, and
There are a variety of injuries that may result in financial, physical, and emotional difficulties. If someone’s negligence causes your injury, we highly recommend speaking with an attorney about your legal options.
Proving Negligence in a Personal Injury Case
The main question asked in most personal injury cases is whether the defendant acted negligently.
To prove negligence, you and your Huntington lawyer must show evidence supporting the following:
- The defendant had a duty of care—Depending on the situation, the defendant may be in a position where they’re responsible for any actions that bring harm to another. For example, doctors have a duty of care to keep their patients safe during treatment.
- The defendant breached that duty—After proving the defendant had a duty, you must show that their actions breached that duty. For car accidents, this may be as simple as the defendant running a red light or committing another traffic violation.
- The breach of duty caused your injuries—If the defendant breached their duty, you must prove that their actions directly led to your injuries. This may be as simple as your doctor failing to rule out pre-existing conditions.
- You suffered damages—Finally, after showing that the defendant’s actions caused your injury, you need to provide evidence of damages. This aspect of the case often requires adding up injury-related expenses, such as medical bills, lost wages, and more.
Several pieces of evidence may help establish a defendant’s negligence. This includes photographs from the scene, medical documents, witness testimony, and other items depending on the nature of the case.
