Is Your Personal Injury Serious Enough to Bring A Claim?
Personal injuries can be of many types including minor injuries to severe injuries to death. In reality, an insurance company may not be liable to repay your loss in every instance. Hutchison & Foreman PLLC lawyers are here to take care of your problem but only if you suffer from serious injuries and damages or in the case of a death of a family member where their injury or death resulted from a breach of duty owed by the insured tortfeasor to you. Another factor is quite important in the case of determining the evaluation of our personal injury representation and that involves negligence and its elements. To answer your question about whether your case is serious enough to bring a claim you need to know something about negligence.
What is negligence?
Tort law primarily focuses on negligent conduct that can harm another person. This can be defined as failure to use ordinary or reasonable care under the same or similar circumstances. If you want to claim your property or individual loss in a lawsuit to be tried to a jury you must first prove these four things:
- Duty: Did the defendant owe you a duty of care?
- Breach of Duty: Did the defendant’s act breach or run afoul of this duty of care?
- Cause: Did the breach of the duty by the defendant proximately cause your damages?
- Damages: Did you suffer injury, damages, death as a result of the actions of the defendant?
