How Do You Know If You Can File a Personal Injury Claim?
Whether you were hurt in an auto accident due to a reckless driver, or you have been injured while on the job, you may have the right to pursue legal action. Depending on various factors surrounding your accident and with the help of a personal injury lawyer, you may be able to file a personal injury claim and seek compensation to cover the cost of your medical bills, lost income due to your injuries, and other related expenses. First things first, you have to determine if your case is eligible for a personal injury claim.
Determining Fault – Who Is to Blame for Your Injuries?
Ultimately the number one factor that is investigated when looking at whether or not you have a personal injury claim is figuring out who was at fault for the injuries that have occurred. This is also known as determining negligence. If another person or party was to blame for the damage caused to you, you may have grounds for an injury claim.
