"Am I Entitled to Compensation?"
There’s no way to answer this question without first evaluating the facts of your claim. And even if your case has merit, no reputable attorney would ever guarantee a particular outcome for your case. Rather, a respectable lawyer would be honest regarding the strengths and weaknesses of your claim and the strategies he or she will use to secure the best possible result. Generally speaking, in order for your personal injury claim to be successful, your Pico Rivera accident attorney must be able to prove the following:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care, which is a legal obligation to exercise reasonable care given the circumstances;
- The defendant breached this duty of care; and
- You suffered an injury or loss as a result of the defendant’s breach of the duty of care.
“Negligence” is the basis for most personal injury claims except those involving strict liability. The defendant would be considered negligent if he or she failed to exercise a level of care that a reasonable person would have exercised given the circumstances. You would have grounds for a tort claim if you were injured or lost a family member due to the defendant’s negligence or intentional act, such as a violent attack. Even if you are certain the defendant is liable for your injury or loss, your claim will not be successful unless you can prove it. Here are just a few examples of evidence your Pico Rivera personal injury attorney might use to prove liability:
- The police report;
- Photographs of the accident scene and/or the hazard that caused your injuries;
- Surveillance footage and dashcam recordings of the incident;
- Eyewitness testimony; and
- Accident reconstruction expert testimony.
There are many other kinds of evidence your lawyer may use depending on the cause of your injury. For example, if you were injured in a crash with a commercial truck, your attorney might use black box data, electronic driver’s logs, and weigh station receipts to prove negligence. If your family member was killed by a drunk driver, your attorney might use the results of chemical tests to prove negligence.
