You were hurt in an accident — and it wasn’t your fault. In order to win most personal injury cases, you must be able to prove that you suffered an injury and/or a financial loss as a result of someone else’s negligence or carelessness. There are several different ways to measure financial loss, including:
Property loss. If any vehicles, clothing, or other items were damaged as a result of the accident, you'll likely be entitled to reimbursement for repairs or compensation for the fair market value of the property that was lost. Some need counseling after their physical injuries have healed. Such damages can pay for the cost of psychological care for years to come.
The defendant in a personal injury lawsuit is responsible for your harms and losses because of his or her actions or lack of actions that led to the accident that injured you. In order to assess whether any of these causes of action apply to your case, you should speak to an experienced attorney with expertise in personal injury claims.
If you or a family member have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you may be able to file a lawsuit seeking compensation.
