Types of Personal Injury Claims
Personal injury claims arise from personal injury accidents. Personal injury accidents include, but are not limited to the following:
In a wrongful death accident, an injured victim succumbs to their injuries. Then, a person with legal standing, usually a family member, stands in their place in a personal injury lawsuit.
Damages in a Personal Injury Claim
When a person or entity acts intentionally or negligently towards another, and that person suffers harm as a result, they may have a personal injury claim for damages. Filing a personal injury claim is the means by which the negligent, or reckless, party is held responsible for any harm they caused their victim.
Compensation in a personal injury claim may include any of the following:
Medical bills, both current and future;
Long-term medical care;
Loss of income;
Loss of earning potential;
Physical and psychological therapy;
Mental and emotional trauma;
Pain and suffering; and
The loss of enjoyment of life.
Additional damages may be available depending on the facts of the personal injury case, such as punitive damages or wrongful death damages.
Proving Damages in a Personal Injury Case
The most challenging part of any personal injury claim or a lawsuit is proving the other party was negligent in their actions, and that this is what directly caused the victim’s injuries or losses. There are four legal elements to a negligence claim. The victim’s attorney must prove all four.
These are as follows:
The offending party owed the victim a duty of care;
The offending party breached that duty of care;
That breach was the direct and proximate cause of the victim’s injury; and
The victim suffered actual damages due to their injury.
Proving liability is often complicated and challenging. It is a job best taken on by an experienced personal injury attorney like those at Haug, Farrar & Franco, PLLC.
