Personal Injury

Personal injury describes incidents that involve negligence. If a person is injured through the fault of someone else, it can be negligence.

In daily life, people are expected to avoid harming each other, whether intentionally or accidentally. The law says people must “exercise reasonable care.” To file a claim for negligence, you must prove that that negligence exists.

Negligence has four elements:

  • duty
  • breach
  • causation
  • damages

You must prove that they owed you a duty of reasonable care and safety.

For example, if they run into your vehicle, they have not exercised reasonable care and so have breached that duty. This must be proved to legally connect their negligence to your resulting injury, which is causation. Any medical bills and lost income for treatment of your injuries are considered your damages.

Our process is simple:

  • Listen to your story
  • Determine the legal issue
  • Collaborate with you to develop the best strategy
