How do I know if I have a personal injury claim?
The attorneys at the Law Offices of Dianne L. Sawaya, LLC analyze a personal injury case based on the concept of negligence. There are the four elements that have to be proven to establish negligence:
- There was a duty to exert reasonable care in performing acts that could harm others.
- That duty was breached.
- Breaching that duty caused injury.
- Damages resulted from the injury.
Damages may take the form of medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more. If you’ve been hurt through no fault of your own in a car accident or semi-truck accident, you may have a personal injury claim. Fault or negligence may not always seem obvious, though, such as if you were hurt while on someone else’s property or if you slipped and hurt yourself in a retail store. You may still have a valid personal injury case. Because the law is so complex, it’s important to work with a skilled and experienced personal injury attorney at the Law Offices of Dianne L. Sawaya, LLC.
