What Are You Entitled To For Your Injury?
An individual who was injured as a result of someone's negligence is entitled to sue the person or corporation responsible. In other words, the individual who was injured as a result of another person's negligence is entitled to receive compensation. In these cases, a clear violation of an expected form of standard conduct (standard of care) must be demonstrated and that violation must be shown to be the proximate cause of the injury.
Examples include doctors who fail to inform their patients of the risks of taking certain medications, and the absence of a caution sign to indicate that a floor has just been cleaned and is therefore wet and possibly slippery. Another obvious example is a person driving too close to another vehicle, causing a rear-end collision.
We will examine the circumstances surrounding your injury to determine who is liable and pursue an outcome that holds the appropriate party accountable and provides you with compensation for the damages you have suffered.
