Helping you understand laws and the legal system, because not knowing can destroy your life.
Hello again! Welcome back to my site. I’m Todd Ayers, and today I wanted to discuss how you can prove fault for a personal injury accident case. Today’s information is brought to you from a lawyer friend of mine. Feel free to click here to visit my friend’s law firm.
Otherwise, let’s jump into some information on proving a personal injury claim. But first, let’s back up a bit and learn why you would need to file a personal injury claim in the first place.
Reasons to File a Personal Injury Case
Not every person who has been injured in an accident can file a personal injury claim or lawsuit. If you were rollerblading and broke an arm because you fell, you probably can’t sue anyone for your injury. Unless…
The only time you could sue in the above example is if the rollerblades were faulty or somehow dangerous, like hidden jet propellers ignited when you least expected them to. Otherwise, this injury is on you.
The reason to file a personal injury claim is if someone else caused your injury and you suffered damages because of it.
So, when can you file an injury claim? When your accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, you have the right to bring an injury claim against the person or party who caused your accident.
Proving Fault in Your Injury Case
Proving another person’s negligence, or responsibility in causing the accident, is not always easy. You will need to collect as much evidence as you can that demonstrates that the person’s actions caused your accident.
For example, if you were injured at a grocery store due to a worker’s negligence, you could sue the store’s owner. But, you must be able to prove the worker caused your injury.
Do you have video surveillance that shows the worker leaving a spill on the floor? Did the worker admit to causing the accident? Did you remember to take photos of the spill, debris, or object that caused the injury?
You can use any and all available evidence to prove your claim and win a settlement to pay for your accident-related damages.
