When an injury happens due to negligence, an injured person can recover their damages from the party that wronged them. Negligence is simply a failure to act the way a reasonable person would act under the circumstance. If someone does not exercise reasonable care to ensure your safety, they are breaching a duty they owe to you under the law.
While accidents may be a fact of life, damages can be cause for litigation. Possible damages include medical expenses, property damage, pain and suffering, loss of income and earning potential and, possibly, punitive damages. But proving a physical, emotional, or cognitive injury can be a difficult process. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of another party’s negligence, you need an aggressive, skilled trial attorney to ensure that you are made whole.
