What Can a Norwalk Personal Injury Attorney Do for You?
You might think you have the ability to go up against a defendant or insurance company on your own as an injured victim. However, insurance companies are notorious for using tactics to devalue claims.
Even if you have the propensity to represent yourself, doing so does not allow you to fully focus on healing or recovering from your injuries. If you hire an attorney, you can recuperate while a trained and experienced lawyer fights for maximum compensation on your behalf. A Norwalk personal injury attorney can gather evidence, talk to eyewitnesses, file your claim, hire experts and take many other steps to resolve your case for you and obtain the best possible outcome.
Who Is Liable for Your Accident?
The personal injury law system allows an accident victim to pursue financial compensation from one or more at-fault parties to make the victim whole again. The party allegedly responsible for the victim’s losses is called the defendant. Liability is the legal term for legal and financial responsibility for a victim’s losses.
One or more parties may be liable for your recent accident in Norwalk if the following four elements are more likely to be true than untrue:
- The defendant had an obligation to treat you with a reasonable degree of care.
- The defendant breached or violated his or her duty of care.
- The defendant’s breach of duty was the actual cause of your injury or illness.
- You suffered real and specific losses in the accident.
These are the four elements of negligence for a lawsuit in personal injury law. Someone is negligent if he or she does not meet the required duty of care and this injures another person. Proving negligence by establishing these four elements will make the defendant(s) liable for your past and future related losses. The burden of proof in a personal injury case is a preponderance of the evidence – clear and convincing evidence that the defendant is more likely than not responsible for the accident.
