What Makes a Personal Injury Case?
There are four factors that determine your personal injury case and these hold true no matter what type of personal injury you have.
Responsibility to Care
Basically, what this means is that the party responsible for your accident had an innate duty or responsibility to act in such a way as to prevent harm. You can think of it like driving cautiously when on the road or a doctor’s obligation to treat a patient and make sure they do not leave worse than when they arrived.
Breach of Responsibility
The second part is known as a breach of responsibility. In other words, the at-fault party had a responsibility to care, and then failed to do so. Once this happens they are responsible for any damage caused by their actions, which in most cases would mean your injuries that were a result of the accident.
Causation refers to the link between the at-fault party’s breach of duty of care and your injuries. If it can be shown that the direct (or most direct) cause of your injuries is due to their breach, then they are the ones who are held responsible.
Damage or Loss
The final part of any personal injury case is to show damage or loss as a result of the breach of duty to care. This means, what injuries or losses did you suffer as a result of the at-fault party not performing their duty? By proving these damages, you are entitled to compensation from the at-fault party.
