Negligence and What it Means for Personal Injury Cases
When it comes to personal injury, the one factor is that common is always negligence. In order to receive compensation for your injury it’s necessary to demonstrate the four tenets of negligence:
- The duty of care: the expectation of the defendant was they were supposed to behave in a responsible manner (ie: follow all posted road signs, maintain a safe work environment, etc.).
- The failure to uphold the duty of care: The defendant failed to meet the expectations to keep other individuals (you) safe (ie: drove recklessly, left workers exposed to hazardous materials, etc.).
- The overall failure caused the incident: The defendant’s careless actions or inactions caused the incident to occur. Your personal injury was ultimately the direct result. This could be what led to a car accident, motorcycle accident, or workplace accident.
- Compensation and damages are necessary: You are now suffering financially (as well as potentially physically and mentally). This could look like medical bills, lost wages, or pain and suffering.
In order to prove all of these tenets you will need to provide evidence that demonstrates your side of what occurred. For example, this could include photos, video, an accident report, doctor’s reports, or eyewitness testimony. As your South Florida Personal Injury Attorney, we can help you determine which and what evidence will help win your case.
Determining Damages That May be Recoverable as a Result of Your Personal Injury
It is difficult to determine what all damages you’re entitled to before understanding your unique personal injury case. There are a variety of factors that may alter your payout. Recoverable damages depend on the following:
- Who was ultimately determined to be responsible for the accident
- The severity and types of injuries that you suffered
- The type of accident that occurred
- How the incident has affected your ability to pay bills and maintain finances
- The insurance policy and limits from the responsible party
- How the incident has affected your overall quality of life
If you’re dealing with a personal injury, understanding all the facets of your case may feeling overwhelming. The good news is you don’t have to deal with this alone. You’re rightfully owed compensation for a personal injury that was the direct result of someone else’s negligence. At Fischetti Law Group, our South Florida Personal Injury Attorney can recover that for you!
