What Is "Liability" ?

Liability is the term used to establish who was at fault for an injury or accident.

If a person is found liable for causing the plaintiff’s injuries, he or she is generally responsible for providing compensation that covers the plaintiff’s economic and non-economic losses.

What Does "Negligence" Mean?

Negligence occurs when a person departs from the behavior expected of a reasonably prudent person in the same or similar circumstance.

Negligence is often used as grounds for filing a personal injury lawsuit. The plaintiff – the person filing the suit – must prove that the defendant’s negligence caused the harm they suffered.

How Much Is My Case Worth?

Many factors determine how much compensation you may receive, including the severity of your injuries, your medical history and the amount of insurance coverage that the responsible person or company has.

An attorney can assess the potential value of your claim.

What Factors Determine The Amount Of Money I Can Recover?

Every personal injury case addresses three core issues:

  • Liability – establishing who was at fault for causing an injury
  • Damages – the amount of money that will fairly and adequately compensate a plaintiff for injuries
  • Source of collection – insurance or other assets from which damages can be recovered.
