When you have been injured in any type of accident, you do not just have to sit back and let the responsible party get away with what they did and the damage that they caused. The law allows you to recover financially for how you have suffered when someone else is to blame. First, you need to prove that they were responsible. Then, you can be in a position to receive compensation. Even when you prove that someone else was negligent, it can be a fight to get the right amount of compensation.
Any time that someone else injures you, the principles of personal injury laws apply to your case. This includes injuries sustained in things like:
Every time, a jury or insurance agency will look to the first question of whether someone else was negligent. However, they will not just assume it based on your account of the accident. They will require proof that shows what happened in the accident. If your case went to court, you would need to prove it by a preponderance of the evidence. This means that it is more likely than not that the facts occurred as you say they did.
When you are dealing with facts, you are telling a story of what happened. However, the insurance company would need to see and hear more than just what you say. When they need to pay, they take on a more adversarial role because they view your claim as directly coming out of their profits. They will demand proof. Otherwise, they may deny your claim.
In proving negligence, you are trying to show that someone acted unreasonably under the circumstances. That requires showing exactly what they did. If your case goes to court, the jury will decide whether it was unreasonable. You need to show exactly what the person did.
Even assuming that you can prove negligence, you are still in for a fight. It is true that most personal injury cases eventually settle, but they take different routes to get to that point. Oftentimes, one of the main fights that you will have is over the amount of compensation as opposed to whether you deserve it.
Your personal injury settlement consists of both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are things that actually came out of your pocket. Primarily, they are things like lost wages and the medical costs associated with your accident. You may not know that you can receive compensation for not only what you have lost, but what you will also continue to lose in the future.
Non-economic damages pay you back for your experience and the mental and physical discomfort that you felt. The main part of these damages is pain and suffering. There are numerous components of personal injury damages, and the insurance company may try to shortchange you on every one of them to save their own profits. This is where you need an attorney to recognize that you are being taken advantage of and fight for you.
