How Do I Know If I Have a Personal Injury Case?

How Do I Know If I Have a Personal Injury Case? snyder law group

Dealing with an injury is stressful enough, and you may wonder whether you should contact a personal injury attorney.

Dealing with an injury is stressful enough. Victims have to deal with medical bills, lost wages, physical therapy, potential property damage, adjusting to a new routine, etc. You may wonder whether you should contact a personal injury attorney. While there is no substitute for specific advice about your situation from a qualified personal injury lawyer, it may be helpful to gain a better understanding of what makes a good personal injury claim. Here are some signs you have a personal injury case.

There Was a Breach of Duty of Care

One key element in personal injury law is “duty of care.” For someone to be responsible for your injury, they first must owe you a duty of care. This means they are obligated by law to prevent harm. There are many circumstances where a duty of care is expected, including:

  • Doctors and medical professionals to their patients
  • Property owners to guests on their premises
  • Drivers to other drivers and pedestrians
  • Manufacturers to customers who buy their products
  • Employers to their employees

It may be considered negligence if an entity has a duty of care obligation and breaches that duty of care. This is one of the points that must be proven to win a your case. 

You Were Injured Due to Someone Else’s Negligence

You must also prove to the court that the other party’s breach of duty caused your injuries. There must be a direct connection between their actions and the accident. You also have to prove proximate cause, which means your injuries were a predictable consequence of the other party’s carelessness or negligence.

You Have Proof of Your Injuries

To have a valid personal injury claim, you must be hurt. You’ll need proof of your injuries, which is why you should go to the emergency room or a doctor after an accident, as your medical records will establish your injuries. A qualified medical professional can assess your situation, provide valuable documentation, and implement a proper treatment plan.

You Have Evidence of the Accident

Nowadays, it’s hard to argue with a photo or video showing someone else’s negligence. Many people install dashboard cameras in their cars to have video footage of everything that went on in the event of an accident. If you slipped and fell in a store, photographs of the hazard that caused your fall and injury are essential pieces of evidence. Documenting the accident scene is key.

When to Call a Personal Injury Attorney

Now that we have gone over the basics of a personal injury claim, you can make better choices on when to call a personal injury lawyer. It is always worth calling a personal injury lawyer if you have been injured through negligence and suffered significant injury and financial damages.
