Do I have a Personal Injury Case?
If you or a loved one has been injured due to the negligence of another person or entity, you may have the right to just compensation. Personal injury cases can arise from any situation, including car accidents, workplace injuries, or defective products.
Although there is no simple answer to the question “Do I have a personal injury case?”, the attorneys of Kaplan & Lukowski, LLP can help you make that determination. When our team receives a potential personal injury case, we evaluate the claim based on some of the following questions:
Was the injury caused by negligence on the part of the responsible party?
In order to prove that you have a personal injury case, you must establish that the other party behaved in a negligent or willfully damaging manner. For example, if a tractor trailer driver crashed into another person’s car because he ignored a stop sign, or wasn’t abiding by state regulations, then his or her actions would be considered negligent.
Was the injury directly caused by the negligent action?
If you are seeking compensation for injuries caused by the negligent behavior of another party, you must confirm that the injury in question was directly caused by the accident, and not other surrounding factors.
Did your injury result in damages that have impacted you financially?
If the negligent actions of another party resulted in injuries that have caused you both physical and financial harm, you may be entitled to compensation for items such as medical bills, lost wages, and/or pain and suffering.
