We are Florida’s premier personal injury law firm and have the experience, expertise, and resources to help individuals recover their losses after an accident. Personal injury law relates to any accidental or intentional harmful act in which the law provides a solution. This includes being destructive to an individual’s character or property, bodily injury to another person, or wrongfully denying the rights of another individual.
What are the Grounds for Filing a Personal Injury Claim?
There are numerous types of personal injury cases. So, it’s important to determine if you have grounds to file a claim or lawsuit. Personal injury claims can be very complex, hence the need to hire a Stuart accident lawyer from the Graves Thomas Injury Law Group. The grounds for determining this type of claim include:
- Intentional Behavior – an individual intends for a specific consequence to result from their actions such as assault, battery, trespassing, etc.
- Negligence – the failure to behave rationally or exercise reasonable care.
- Strict Liability – this occurs when the actions or behavior of an individual causes harm to another and usually applies dangerous or hazardous activities.
The majority of all personal injury cases are based on negligence. In order to prove that the at-fault party (defendant) acted negligently, your Stuart personal injury lawyer must show the following:
- The defendant was legally obligated to adhere to a standard of reasonable care (a.k.a “Duty of Care”).
- They breached the Duty of Care.
- The injury victim (plaintiff) was injured.
- Their injuries were caused because the at-fault party/defendant breached the Duty of Care.
How our attorneys go about proving this depends on the circumstances of the plaintiff’s case, who the defendant is, and the type of personal injury the plaintiff has suffered in the accident. Based on the level of injuries and the severity of it, we’ll evaluate and calculate the deserved compensation that you are entitled to.
