Whether it’s a major accident with property, vehicle, and serious personal injury or a no-fault incident with a scratch or bruise, rarely does someone escape an accident without a negative result, from vehicle damage to physical and psychological injuries. In many cases, the accident itself is only the beginning of what can be a complicated process of filing an insurance claim, determining fault, and most importantly, getting the closure one needs to continue with their life. Having to take on both the insurance companies and the law to receive what you deserve from your accident is intimidating and often, victims will accept a smaller settlement than if they had hired an attorney or received a free case evaluation.

How Negligence Affects Personal Injury Claims

Most personal injury claims mandate us to provide evidence that the at-fault party acted negligently. Only if we prove negligence can we hold them responsible and recover the compensation you deserve. To prove negligence, we must show:

  1. The other party had a certain duty to keep you from unreasonable danger;

  2. They failed to uphold this duty;

  3. Their failure caused your accident and injuries; and

  4. You suffered financial damages in the accident.

The evidence we gather depends heavily on how your injuries happened. The evidence in a slip and fall case is much different from the evidence in a boat crash, for example. However, we know how to compile the most effective evidence in any case. This may include:

  • Police, first responder, or business accident reports;

  • Eyewitness testimony;

  • Surveillance video;

  • Smartphone photos of the scene; and

  • Your medical records.
