Who Is Eligible to File a Personal Injury Claim?
In order to bring a personal injury claim for damages, you will need to first establish several elements proving your eligibility to receive compensation.
To bring a personal injury claim, you will need to show the following:
- Another person/party owed you a “duty of care.” This means that someone else was responsible for acting in a reasonably safe manner to prevent you from coming to harm. A duty of care may be explicit, but it is more often implied, such as the duty of care that exists between motorists on the road or between a doctor and her patients.
- The duty of care was breached. In other words, the person who owed you a reasonable expectation of safety failed to uphold this duty. An example of this would be a distracted driver; when someone is driving while texting, they are failing to uphold the duty of care to act in a reasonable manner to prevent other motorists from being harmed.
- As a result of the breach of the duty of care, you suffered damages. Essentially, you must prove causality between the breach of the duty of care and your damages. Such damages should be measurable and can include things like medical expenses, lost income/wages, loss of life quality, pain and suffering, property damage, and more.
After establishing these elements, you can file a personal injury claim and seek compensation for your losses. Our firm can help. Get in touch with our Federal Way personal injury lawyers to learn more.
