Florence Personal Injury Lawyer

Even at your most cautious, you can become a victim of an accident that occurs without warning. One moment, everything is as it should be and the next, your life is changed by someone else’s negligence, or carelessness. Our Florence personal injury lawyer knows that after any accident, physical pain is just one of the outcomes you will have to deal with. You will also have medical bills piling up, and have no income to pay for them if you are unable to return to work right away. Below are factors to consider before filing a claim against the negligent party.

Areas of Personal Injury Law

Accidents happen in a number of ways and each of them fall into a different area of personal injury law. Our personal injury lawyer handles many different types of personal injury claims including:

Any of the above accidents can result in traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, burns, spinal cord injuries, and more. These injuries are costly to treat and accident victims should not have to pay the financial burden out of their own pocket.

Proving Negligence in Personal Injury Claims

The majority of accidents are entirely preventable and are only caused by another person’s negligence, or carelessness. When filing a personal injury claim against another person or company for their negligence, you must prove the following four elements of your case:

  • Duty of care: Proving duty of care is fairly straightforward. For example, all motorists have a duty of care to operate their vehicle in a manner that keeps others safe.
  • Breach: Proving the liable party breached their duty of care is more challenging. This involves proving the defendant acted negligently.
  • Causation: A negligent act on its own is not enough to prove a personal injury claim. You must also establish that the negligent act directly caused the accident.
  • Damages: A personal injury claim is meant to compensate you for your injuries and other losses, known as damages. If you did not suffer losses, there is nothing to compensate you for and so, no personal injury claim.

Damages Available in Personal Injury Claims

You cannot undo the accident or reverse the injuries and immense pain and suffering you endured. However, you can claim compensation to help offset the financial burden they impose. The damages available in personal injury claims include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation-related expenses
  • Lost wages and loss of future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress and mental anguish
  • Permanent scarring and disfigurement
