Preventable accidents happen every day. These accidents often cause victims to suffer injuries that require extensive medical care and necessitate taking time off work to recover. In some cases, victims’ lives are permanently altered by their injuries or following complications. When a victim’s injury saddles him or her with substantial expenses, he or she can seek compensation for these expenses through a personal injury claim.

Understanding Personal Injury Claims

A successful personal injury claim must demonstrate the following:

  • One party had the duty to act in a reasonable manner to protect others. For example, drivers have the duty to pay attention to the road and obey posted traffic laws;
  • That party breached his or her duty in some way, such as speeding;
  • Because of the breach, an accident occurred. In our example, this could be a collision between the speeding vehicle and another vehicle; and
  • The accident resulted in a victim’s injury, which in turn resulted in financial damages for the victim. A collision between two vehicles can result in a variety of injury types, such as a broken bone.

The party who breached his or her duty is known as the negligent party. He or she is liable for any damages that result from the act of negligence.

Filing a Personal Injury Claim After an Accident

There are a variety of accident types that can result in an injury and cause a victim to file a personal injury claim. These include:

Seeking Compensation for your Damages Through a Personal Injury Claim

You can seek compensation for the following damages through a personal injury claim:

  • Your medical expenses, which can include hospitalization, medication, and rehabilitative therapy;
  • Your lost wages, which include immediate lost earnings and long-term losses, such as a reduced work capacity or missed advancement opportunities; and
  • Your pain and suffering damages, which include all intangible damages related to your injury like the need for in-home domestic aid and disability aids like a wheelchair.

In order to recover compensation for your damages, you must provide evidence to support your claim. Evidence can include:

  • Photographs of the accident;
  • The official accident report;
  • Testimonies from witnesses to the accident; and
  • Your doctor’s testimony.

Your lawyer can help you obtain and use the evidence you need to support your claim. He or she can also negotiate with the insurance provider handling the claim to help you secure an appropriate compensation package for your damages.
