Our Specialties and Expertise
What is a Personal Injury Lawsuit
A personal injury lawsuit is a legal claim filed by an individual who has suffered physical injury or death because of the negligent, reckless, or intentional conduct of another individual, company, or governmental entity. It typically occurs with auto accidents, medical malpractice, workers compensation, prescription drugs, medical devices, and defective products. Our law firm has more than 30 personal injury lawyers specializing in these types of claims.
What Do I Have to Prove to Win a Personal Injury Lawsuit
In order to succeed in your personal injury case, you will need to prove three things: (1) the other side acted in a negligent, reckless, or intentional manner; (2) the other side caused your injury; and (3) the amount of your damages.
In regard to the first thing you need to prove, negligence is the failure of the person at fault to use reasonable care, which is the care that a reasonably careful person would have used under the same circumstances.
The second thing you need to prove is causation, which means the other side caused your injury, or substantially contributed to causing your injury. The third thing you need to prove is your damages.
It's our job as your personal injury lawyers to gather all the evidence to prove your claim, and then present your best case possible to the insurance company; and if necessary, to a judge and jury.
