Who Can File a Personal Injury Claim?
The key element of any standard personal injury claim is negligence. In other words, in order to file a claim, you must prove that another person or party was negligent and that this is what led to your injuries and resulting damages.
The four elements of a personal injury claim are:
Duty of Care:
To bring a claim, you must establish that another party owed you a duty of care. This is a legal responsibility, expressed or implied, to ensure the safety of others (within reason). For example, all motorists owe a duty of care to others on the road in that they must follow traffic laws and do everything possible to avoid collisions.
Next, you must show that the defendant breached the duty of care. This is where negligence (or wrongful conduct) typically comes in. If a person or entity has acted negligently or unlawfully, they have typically breached the duty of care by failing to take reasonable measures to prevent an accident, injury, or death.
Committed To Your Recovery
At Clawson Fargnoli Utsey, LLC, we negotiate aggressively with insurance companies and other liable parties to recover the maximum compensation our clients are owed.
Damages in Personal Injury Cases
The purpose of a personal injury claim is to allow victims of negligence to recover financial compensation for the losses they experienced due to their injuries. These losses are collectively known as “damages.”
Victims of negligence can pursue compensation for both financial and non-financial damages, including but not limited to:
Ambulance fees and hospitalization
Ongoing and future medical expenses
Lost income and/or wages
Lost future earnings
Lost or reduced earning capacity due to disability
Lost or reduced quality of life
Property damage repair costs
Emotional distress and trauma
At Clawson Fargnoli Utsey, LLC, we negotiate aggressively with insurance companies and other liable parties to recover the maximum compensation our clients are owed. However, if the liable party refuses to offer a fair settlement, we are ready and able to take your case to trial.
