Others Owe You the Duty of Care

Personal injury law encompasses a diverse variety of cases. There is one thing that all of these cases have in common. You would need to prove that someone else was to blame for your injuries in order to receive financial compensation.

We handle claims involving:

In a personal injury case, everything begins with the duty of care. Someone else takes on legal obligations to you by virtue of their relationship to you. These people may owe you (or someone else) a duty of care:

  • A driver near you on the road
  • A store owner that holds their premises open to you
  • A nursing home that is supposed to care for your loved one
  • A doctor who treats you

You Can Win a Personal Injury Claim By Proving that Others Acted Unreasonably

In order to win your personal injury claim, you would need to prove that someone acted unreasonably under the circumstances. There are some times when accidents really do happen. There are other times when the other party did what anyone else would have done. You need to prove that the responsible party departed from the standard of care expected of them under the circumstances.

Here are some examples of things that may be unreasonable actions in personal injury cases:

  • A driver rear-ends a car because they were not looking at the road
  • A property owner does not remove debris from your path within a reasonable amount of time
  • A motorist makes a left turn and cuts off a motorcyclist
  • Nursing home staff fails to care for your loved one, and they are injured by a bedsore
  • A scaffolding subcontractor failed to properly assemble the scaffold, causing it to collapse

In essence, you are comparing what the defendant actually did to what the average person would have done.

How to Prove Your Personal Injury Case

You need more than just your word to persuade an insurance company to pay a claim or the jury to award you money. In every personal injury case, you are the one with the burden of proof. You must demonstrate your case by a preponderance of the evidence. The good news is that this standard is lower than the “beyond a reasonable doubt” standard that a prosecutor would need to meet in a criminal case.

Still, you need to gather evidence that backs up your claim, which is not always easy to do when you are injured. Some of this evidence may be in the defendant’s hands. Your lawyer would both investigate your accident and gather the necessary evidence to prove your claim.

Your Damages in a Personal Injury Case

The first step of any personal injury case is proving that you are entitled to damages. Then, to be fully paid for your injuries, you would need to prove your actual damages. You always need to enter the personal injury process with a full understanding of the exact amount of your damages, so you can effectively negotiate with the insurance company or persuade a jury. 

The legal concept at work is that the responsible party needs to pay you for all the harm that you have suffered. You could have suffered actual financial losses, such as having to pay medical bills or not being able to work. You could be going through an ordeal between the physical pain and depression that you are experiencing. The responsible party needs to pay you for both and compensate you fully. The Chattanooga personal injury lawyers at Hall & Lampros will work to maximize your financial compensation.
