Suffering an injury can be devastating, no matter how serious it is. Not only do you have to deal with the recovery process and costly medical expenses, but also missing time from work to heal can make it difficult to keep up with household expenses and support your family. Furthermore, the other party and their insurance company may blame you for the accident, so it is possible to lose your claim and pay the other party’s damages. It is imperative to hire an experienced attorney to protect your rights and best interests throughout the legal process.

Elements of a Personal Injury Claim
Injuries caused by a person’s or entity’s negligence or recklessness may result in a personal injury lawsuit. There are several elements you must prove in order to win your case.
The following are the four elements of a personal injury case:
- Duty of care: Every person has at least some duty of care towards others, which is generally an obligation to avoid injuring another person or placing them in danger. In a car accident, for example, a driver has a duty of care to drive safely and follow the traffic laws.
- Breach of duty: The second element is a failure to exercise reasonable care, allowing a dangerous situation to occur. For instance, a driver is texting while driving and doesn’t see the red light. Even if the defendant didn’t intentionally cause the accident, they could still be held liable for their negligence.
- Causation: The third element is the breach of duty caused an injury. For instance, a distracted driver runs a red light and strikes another motorist, causing serious injury and property damage.
- Damages: Lastly, damages involve property damage, medical costs, lost earnings, as well as physical and emotional injuries. If a person isn’t injured and didn’t suffer any damages, then this isn’t considered a valid claim.
