Negligence in Personal Injury Claims
Accidents happen for a reason, and negligence is usually behind them. Negligence is a legal term that means you must prove certain elements to succeed on a claim, including:
- The responsible party’s duty to exercise the amount of care a reasonable person would under the circumstances;
- A failure to comply with this legal obligation;
- A causal connection between the breach and the injury-causing accident; and,
- The losses you suffered as a result of the accident.
In addition to experience and knowledge, the key to meeting these required elements is gathering sufficient evidence.
Though your own testimony, recollection of witnesses, police reports, photos, medical records, and paystubs are useful, other professionals play an important role. A Capitola personal injury attorney from the Allen Law Firm has access to the necessary resources to support your claim, including:
- Medical experts;
- Accident reconstruction specialists;
- Financial analysts;
- Vehicle technology experts; and,
- Many other specialists.
In many claims, you will work with an insurance company, such as the insurer that provides coverage for a negligent motorist, business, homeowner, and others. Our lawyers aggressively pursue your claim to ensure the settlement amount sufficiently compensates you for your damages. If necessary, we will take the matter to court to protect your rights.
