If you’ve suffered an injury as a result of a car accident, were injured on the job, or suffered injury on another’s property, how do you know if you have a case that will stand up in court? Have you decided not to file a claim? Are you potentially missing out on just payment for your injury and losses?

There are several factors that determine the viability of a personal injury claim. If you don’t think you have a chance at winning, and you don’t speak to a personal injury lawyer about your case, you could be missing out on thousands — and in some cases, millions — of dollars to repay you for your injury, medical expenses, lost wages and more.

There are three key elements that must be proven in any personal injury case:

  1. Negligence — This means that the person or entity who caused the accident acted in an unreasonable manner, and that their negligence led to injury or death.
  2. Causation — This is the most important element of any personal injury case. Causation is proof that the negligence of the at-fault party did in fact cause the injuries of the claimant.
  3. Damages — Once negligence and causation are established, damages are considered. The damages resulting from an accident include past, present and future medical bills and lost wages. Damages can also include pain and suffering, anguish, disfigurement, loss of companionship and interference with the claimant’s ability to lead a normal daily life.

Injuries suffered in car accidents or on the job can be life changing. Don’t assume your case won’t stand up in court before talking to a personal injury attorney. Hiring a personal injury attorney when you’ve been injured in an accident is not simply another unnecessary expense. Doing so can pay back multiple dividends, decreasing your stress level and helping you recover more money than you ever could on your own to help you pay for medical bills, recover your lost wages and be compensated for your pain, hassle and scarring.
