Do You Have Grounds for a Personal Injury Claim in Wauwatosa?
One of the main reasons why people do not contact a lawyer or seek compensation for their damages is because they are simply unsure or unaware if they have a valid case. This is exactly why it’s so important to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. An experienced injury lawyer can listen to your story and let you know what your legal options are. Insurance companies will likely try to offer a small amount of money shortly after the accident. While many people are inclined to take the initial offer, it is typically not nearly enough to cover bills for medical treatment, even in relatively minor injuries. In order to have a chance to receive a just settlement offer, you need to have a full understanding of your injuries and the effect that they have had on your life. An attorney can help you do that as well as identify who may be legally responsible.
In personal injury cases, legal responsibility hinges on the concept of negligence. Negligence refers to a person or entity’s carelessness that results in injury. To establish negligence in a personal injury case, the following must be proven:
- Duty of care: The person or entity had a duty to act in a reasonable manner to keep you safe
- Breach of duty: The duty was breached, either by action or omission
- Causation: The breach caused your injury
- Damages: You suffered actual damages as a result
