Do I Have Grounds for a Personal Injury Claim?
The easiest way to find out if you have grounds for a personal injury claim is to consult an attorney. Your lawyer can assess the evidence you have gathered, listen to your story, and determine if you may be entitled to compensation.
Unless your claim involves strict liability, you will need to prove that another party’s negligence or malicious act caused your injury for your claim to be successful. This requires establishing that the defendant owed a duty of care to you and breached that duty. For instance, auto part manufacturers have a duty to ensure their parts are safe. If, for example, a company produces defective brakes and a person is injured in an accident as a result, that victim can bring a claim against the manufacturer for any damages incurred. Other examples of negligence that lead to personal injury lawsuits include:
- A commercial truck driver was on the road for too many consecutive hours, resulting in a fatigue-related collision;
- A motorcyclist caused a crash while speeding and weaving between vehicles;
- The owner of a store failed to clean up a spilled beverage, resulting in a slip and fall;
- The owner of a dog let the animal run free without a leash, and it bit someone; or
- A boater caused an accident while operating his or her vessel under the influence of alcohol.
These are just a few examples of negligence that could give rise to personal injury claims. The Hanford accident lawyers at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers can assess your case for free to determine whether your case has merit.
Don’t Get Bullied into Accepting an Unfair Settlement
Insurance companies are in the business of generating profits, so you shouldn’t expect the insurer to step up to the plate and pay a fair settlement without a fight. If you are facing steep medical bills and time off work, you may be tempted to accept a low payout, but doing so could put you in serious financial turmoil if the settlement is not enough to cover your future healthcare expenses and loss of earning capacity.
The Hanford personal injury lawyers at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers will make sure you are treated fairly by the insurance company. We will investigate your case thoroughly to ensure your claim includes all recoverable damages. If the insurer refuses to accept a reasonable settlement offer, we will not hesitate to take your case to trial.
