No one starts there day planning on getting hurt. However, whether or not we get hurt is usually out of our control. If you do happen to get harmed on someone else’s property, or at a business, you may have a claim. Getting hurt can be a traumatic experience, that takes up a lot of your time, and causes a lot of suffering. Hiring a personal injury attorney can help take some of that burden off of your soldiers. Before you get started, you should consider the following.
The first thing you want to confirm in your case is that the other party had control of the property you were harmed on. This could be an entity who is occupying a building they leased or the property owner. For help determining whos at fault, its best to consult with your attorney before filing a claim. If you were harmed because a property owner fails to remedy or warn a person of a dangerous condition, they could be liable for any damages you suffer because of that hazard. Whatever the cause is, it’s important you document that happens. This can be gathering eye witness statements or getting recordings. Be sure to contact a lawyer as soon as possible so no evidence is destroyed or altered. For example, a hazard that caused your injury could be fixed quickly after your accident. If this hazard wasn’t properly documented before being fixed, it could harm your case.
The next thing you have to do is prove negligence. Negligence is used to refer to the action a party did to breach their duty of care you are owed. You need to be able to prove that this negligence caused your injury. This is extremely important in building your case. If you cannot prove that the other party caused your injury because of their negligence, this could ruin your whole case. In order to prove this, you should document everything you can. Things like incident reports, photos, statements from your doctor, and so on. This will help your lawyer show causation between the other party’s actions and your injury.
The last thing to prove the value of your injuries. If you had to miss work due to the injury, you could be entitled to lost wages in the form of economic damages. If the other party was extremely negligent, you could seek punitive damages. Otherwise, you could get compensated for your medical bills and pain and suffering. A personal injury attorney can help you in navigating what money is owed to you.
