How Do I Know If I Have a Strong Personal Injury Case?

Every accident and injury is different, so the process that you will need to follow to prove your claims may vary. Still, in general, you have a strong case if you have reliable evidence that shows who was liable for your injury. To prove liability, you’ll need to have evidence supporting each of these claims:

  1. The at-fault person had a legal obligation.
  2. The at-fault person failed in that obligation.
  3. As a result of that failure, you were injured.

This might sound complicated, but it’s simpler than you would expect. For instance, everyone has a “legal obligation” to drive responsibly. If we injure someone because we failed to drive responsibly, then we have to pay for their losses.

In the same way, a shop owner has an obligation to maintain a reasonably safe shop, an employer has an obligation to provide reasonably safe working conditions, and a dog owner has an obligation to keep their pet from injuring other people.
