How Do You Know if You Have a Personal Injury Case?
To claim compensation, the following elements must be proved.
Someone acted negligently or wrongfully. What does this mean? It means that someone did something a reasonable person would not do or would not be allowed to do. This could be anything from speeding, to failing to put up a “Caution” sign when floors are wet, to running a red light.
Your damages were caused by this negligent or wrongful act. In order to receive compensation, you must prove that any damages you incurred were caused by the negligent act of another individual or entity. Damages can be personal injuries, medical bills, property damage costs, and other losses such as pain and suffering and wage losses.
