Do I Have a Valid Personal Injury Case?
The legal professionals at Bagolie Friedman in Paterson, New Jersey offer a free evaluation to determine the validity of your case. Every personal injury case is unique and the key element is proving fault. When determining negligence, the following factors must be considered:
• Duty of Care Was Owed—Storeowners, healthcare professionals and employers all have a duty of care to their customers, patients and employees.
• Breach of Duty Occurred—The plaintiff must prove that a breach of duty occurred when the defendant knowingly put them at risk.
• Proximate Cause—The actions of the defendant was the direct cause of the plaintiff’s injury.
• Seeking Damages—Injured victims have the legal right to recover compensation for a variety of issues, including temporary or permanent disability due to their injuries.
An accident attorney will examine all of the relevant evidence to determine if you have a valid case. The laws in New Jersey allow a plaintiff to obtain compensation even if they were partially to blame for their injuries. Injured victims can still get damages if they were less than 51 percent at fault.
Statistics show that most people will eventually be involved in an accident where harm is done. Most of the time, these incidents are small and the thought of invoking the law would be frivolous. However, the law often comes into play because the personal injury sustained is too grave to simply brush off. Medical bills and money lost for time off of work are all burdens that an injured party must bear, unless he or she can prove that the injury sustained is from the negligent behavior of another.
