Pembroke Pines Injury Lawyers

When you’ve been injured in an accident because of someone else’s negligence or recklessness, you may have a personal injury claim. To obtain compensation for your injuries and losses, you will likely first file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company. However, insurance companies are businesses that are only concerned with their bottom line. As such, they will work to prove that the at-fault party did not cause your injuries and that you should not be compensated for your injuries. They often use confusing or dishonest tactics that require the representation of an experienced personal injury attorney.

At 388CEDA, we can recommend knowledgeable personal injury attorneys in the Little Havana area upon your request, so that you can avoid the stress of dealing with insurance companies on your own. Our attorneys can work to reach a settlement with the insurance companies that will adequately pay for your damages. If a settlement cannot be reached, our attorneys may file a lawsuit on your behalf and provide competent and zealous representation.

Proving Negligence in a Personal Injury Lawsuit

The basis of your claim for compensation is that someone else was negligent. This is a legal term of art that you will hear used regarding every single personal injury claim. Negligence is defined as the failure to act with the ordinary care that a reasonable person would use under the circumstances.

The question then becomes how you prove that someone else was negligent because, without doing this, you cannot be paid for your injuries. This is where your attorney is critical. You need to prove that what happened meets each element of a four-part test that governs every single personal injury case. Specifically, you need to show that each of the four apply:

  • The defendant owed you a duty of care
  • The defendant breached the duty of care by acting unreasonably
  • You suffered an injury
  • You would not have been injured had it not been for the actions of the defendant.

The standard of proof in a personal injury case is “preponderance of the evidence.” You need to show that your side of the story “more likely than not happened.” Do not hesitate to file a claim or lawsuit because you cannot prove what happened beyond a shadow of a doubt. That is the standard of proof in criminal cases.

How a Pembroke Pines Injury Lawyer May Help

In any personal injury case, the facts matter. One of the major issues in every case is whether the defendant acted unreasonably under the circumstances. This all depends on what the defendant did in your specific case. What may be reasonable in one case could be unreasonable in another. For example, driving a car at the speed limit is usually reasonable. However, if the defendant was driving at the speed limit during a driving South Florida rainstorm, that would be unreasonable.

Your lawyer may assist you in gathering and presenting the evidence in your case. You need to tell your story to an insurance company or a jury, but that is not always easy, especially when the insurance has a vested interest in not paying you. An attorney could be present when you speak with the insurance and could present your claim to them. If your case goes to court, your attorney might introduce evidence and question witnesses to prove your case. After all, when it comes to a negligence claim, the only things that really happened are the ones that you can prove.
