Establishing liability in personal injury suits
In personal injury cases, the injury victim becomes hurt because of another party’s negligence. Negligence is a term referring to an action—or lack of taking reasonable action—that is considered unreasonable, reckless, or neglectful in some way and poses a hazard to human health and safety. For example, if a driver fails to stop at a red light and this leads to a road collision, the driver who failed to stop can be held liable—or legally responsible—in court damages resulting from their negligent actions. Damages can include injuries to other motorists or pedestrians involved in the accident as well as any property damage done to other vehicles in the accident.
Documentation is key
Documenting injuries and the circumstances that led up to them can make a critical difference in the outcome of your case. Documentation such as copies of medical bills or physical therapy bills, copies of pay stubs to show lost wages, and photos of injuries can help your attorney better build your case for the civil courts.
