Determining Fault in a Personal Injury Case

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

Determining liability in a personal injury case is one of the most important aspects filing a successful claim. Because every personal injury claim is unique, this often also one of the most difficult legal requirements to fulfill.

Our experienced Newburgh personal injury attorney has years of handling all types of injury claims, and he knows how to determine which parties should be pursued for damages.

Once a liable party has been identified, Mr. Rock can then aggressively fight to ensure you get all of the compensation to which you are entitled.

A common standard used to prove fault in personal injury claims is the presence of negligence. Negligence can be demonstrated through:

  • The existence or occurrence of actual damages incurred by the plaintiff
  • Proof that the plaintiff was harmed by a breach of legal duty owed by the defendant
  • Solid evidence that the plaintiff’s injuries were a direct result of the defendant’s actions

Although these criteria might seem quite simple, the process of proving negligence to establish liability is incredibly complex process. In addition to conditions mentioned above, there are still a number of additional factors that can affect personal injury liability.

To ensure that you actually a have a legitimate personal injury claim to pursue, and it’s important to have your case individually assessed by a professional.
