What Is Personal Injury Law?
Personal injury law is a type of tort law that deals with cases in which people are seriously injured because of the negligent actions of others. Personal injury claims are civil matters that may be filed at the same time that corollary criminal cases against the bad actors are also filed.
The burden of proof in civil matters is lower than the burden of proof that is required in criminal cases, meaning that you may be able to recover damages even if the defendant’s corresponding criminal matter is dismissed. If you win a personal injury claim, you will be awarded damages to compensate you for your economic and non-economic injuries.
4 Elements Of A Personal Injury Claim
In order to prove your case, you will need to be able to prove that four elements of a personal injury claim. You must prove the following:
- The defendant owed you a duty of reasonable care;
- The defendant violated the duty of care;
- The defendant’s breach of the duty caused you to be injured; and
- You suffered financial harm or damages as a result.
If we accept your case, we will build a strong case in order to assist you with proving all of the required elements.
