The most common grounds for a civil lawsuit involve negligence. These include motor vehicle accidents, pedestrian accidents, dangerous products, medical malpractice, and premises liability (accidents involving slips and falls). When an accident occurs due to negligence, an injured person may file a claim against the negligent person or business to recover all their damages. Damages typically include current and future medical expenses, property damage, pain and suffering, current and future loss of income, loss of enjoyment and in certain cases, punitive damages.
In order to prove negligence, your personal injury lawyer must show that: the other party was negligent; their negligence resulted in your injury; and you suffered damages as a result of the injury.
