Key Factors in Personal Injury Cases

The biggest determining factors in how much compensation can be recovered are how the accident occurred and the severity of the injury.

  • Circumstances of the accident – To be a viable personal injury case, your personal injury attorney must prove that the accident or event that caused the injury was done negligently or intentionally.
  • Negligence – In personal injury law, negligence occurs when an individual does not provide the level of care that a prudent person would under similar circumstances. This can include scenarios like a driver who runs a red light or a store owner who neglects to clear a hazard from a pathway. If this negligence results in harm to someone else, the responsible party can be held accountable for the damages.
  • Duty of Care – The “Duty of Care” refers to the responsibility each of us has to prevent causing harm to others. This obligation manifests in various ways. For example, drivers are expected to operate their vehicles safely and adhere to traffic regulations, while property owners must keep their premises safe. The critical concept here is “reasonable,” which is determined by what a typical person would consider cautious or prudent in similar circumstances.
  • Breach of Duty – A “breach of duty” happens when an individual fails to meet their duty of care to someone else. This occurs when a person acts unreasonably and causes harm as a result. For instance, if a store owner is aware of a spill and neglects to address it, leading to a customer slipping and sustaining an injury, the owner has failed to uphold their duty of care.
  • The severity of injuries resulting from the accident – This is often the most important factor in determining how much can be recovered for a personal injury case, but there does need to be actual financial damage or an injury that occurred, a case cannot be built around potential damage that could have happened at the hands of another’s negligence. For example, there may be huge potholes in a road that could cause serious injury if someone were to drive over them at speed, but if no one experiences a crash or is injured because of the potholes, there are no damages that a personal injury lawyer can go after compensation for.

Why You Should Hire Our Personal Injury Attorneys

Hiring an attorney to help you with a personal injury case has a few distinct advantages.

  • Larger average settlements. When a plaintiff represents themselves in a personal injury case, many studies have shown that they are only able to collect about 1/3 compared to what they could have been able to recover with an experienced personal injury attorney building their case.
  • Secondary investigation. Our personal injury law firm has a dedicated team of investigators that they can rely on to help reconstruct an accident and determine who is at fault when the cause is disputed. We’ve seen this tactic be extremely useful in disputed personal injury cases that our team has handled over the years.
  • Multiple parties are involved. If you have to deal with fighting multiple insurance companies in your case, our lawyers can help you build a strong argument supported by evidence that can give you a better chance of winning the case in the end.
  • Insurance companies are acting in bad faith. Bad faith insurance cases are quite common as many insurers may believe that they can strong-arm their policyholders and that the insured does not know how to respond to recover the funds they are entitled to. Our experienced California and Nevada personal injury attorney can help you secure a fair settlement from the insurance company.
