What Is a Personal Injury Claim?
Personal injury claims are not the same as criminal cases. They use the civil justice system instead. Civil justice allows individuals to reach fair solutions when someone else’s negligence, recklessness, default, intent to harm or malpractice caused their injuries. If you believe another person or entity (such as an employer or company) caused your recent injuries in Huntsville, that party may owe you financial compensation based on the rules of the civil justice system. Most negligence-based civil claims require four elements to succeed.
- Duty of care owed to the plaintiff.
- A breach of the duty of care.
- A causal relationship between the breach of duty and the injury.
- Damages suffered by the plaintiff.
If you have all four elements, the defendant may owe you compensation. Most personal injury cases settle through insurance negotiations (without going to trial). Insurance companies negotiate with plaintiffs and their attorneys to achieve fair settlements. If an insurance company refuses to offer a reasonable amount, however, your case might need to proceed to trial. Drake Law Firm’s trial-tested attorneys can represent you during court trials.
