How Is a Personal Injury Claim Successful?
In order to successfully win a personal injury claim in court, you need to establish 3 general elements:
- That you have suffered an accident and injury that has resulted in damage and loss;
- That the person responsible had a duty of care in the circumstances to prevent a foreseeable risk of harm from happening; and
- That the person responsible breached that duty of care.
Proving these elements may not always be as simple as they sound. The law and public resources is not always set out in black and white. Case law and legislation are difficult to interpret and apply in specific circumstances such as your accident.
Failing to appreciate the complexity of the law may result in an adverse effect on your claim including a minimizing of your compensation or at worse, the loss of your legal rights completely.
Insurance companies and their lawyers will also employ every tactic they can to minimize the amount they have to pay in compensation. Their loyalty is predominantly focused on their own shareholders.
This is why you need a good personal injury lawyer to protect your legal rights. It is important to seek representation that will keep your best interests in mind and fight to keep them on the negotiating table and in court if necessary.
What Can I Be Compensated For?
Our team is prepared to represent you in your claim to compensate your losses. Some of the compensation that you may be able to receive includes:
- Future and present medical expenses including medication, treatment and therapy
- Lost wages and salary
- Rehabilitation costs
- Pain and suffering
- Housekeeping and personal care expenses
- Gratuitous care provided by others for free
- Out of pocket expenses
- Loss of consortium (spousal deprivation of normal marital relations)
- Retraining and education to return to employment or seek alternative employment
Calculating compensation is a very difficult endeavour and it is important that this matter be brought to a personal injury lawyer in order for you to get the benefit of pursuing compensation in as many areas as you are legally entitled to.
This is important to ensure that your future and family is adequately protected from the uncertainties that follow after an accident and injury.
