Do I Have a Good Accident Case?
Accident victims need three things to be present in order to have a good case. First, the other party must have been “negligent”. Obvious examples of negligence for accident cases include auto accidents where a driver runs a stop sign or red light and injures someone else. Second, there must be some type of compensable harm. This means more than just hurt feelings. However, it may also include more than just physical injuries and financial harm. Other types of losses can be compensated as well. The third requirement is causation. If established, the link between the negligent act and the harm caused allows the court to impose legal liability on the defendant. It is important to remember that in an at work injury case, no one has to be at fault, there simply needs to be an accident or development of an occupational disease that arose from the job or working conditions.
