Proving Fault in a Personal Injury Case

October 12th, 2017

Proving Fault in a Personal Injury Case

Proving who is at fault is at the root of winning a personal injury case. You must prove that another person is responsible for your injury or damages and provide the necessary documents and evidence to support your claim so that you can receive the compensation that you deserve. If you are injured due to the negligence of another person, proving who is at fault may not be easy. However, an experienced personal injury lawyer will have the knowledge and experience to help you receive your rightful compensation.

Determining Negligence in a Personal Injury Case

If you have been hurt in an accident, determining who is at fault is crucial in filing a personal injury claim. The accident may be caused by a person who failed to perform, execute or uphold his or her duty. The court will decide which individual or party acted negligently and caused the accident. If you are injured as a direct result of the negligence of another person or party, they are considered at-fault for your personal injury and are responsible for compensating you for the injuries and damages.

Another important component of a personal injury claim is providing proof of the damages. You should bring proof of any financial or other losses you suffered because of the accident. These losses may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Impairment or decreased quality of life
  • Lost wages
  • Damage to property
  • Psychological or emotional impairment

Were you partly responsible for the accident?

Even if you were partly responsible for the accident you were injured in, New York State’s comparative negligence clause allows you to claim compensation for your injuries and damages from the other party. The amount you receive will be calculated according to what percentage of the negligence you and the other person or party were responsible for in the accident.

When More than One Party is at Fault in the Accident

In cases where more than one party is at fault for the accident, you may be required to notify all the parties involved in the accident. However, you can bring a personal injury claim against only one negligent party depending on the evidence and information you gather.

Handling a personal injury case can be more complicated than you might anticipate. The wisest course of action is to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you through the legal process and ensure that you receive your rightful compensation.

Statute of Limitations for a Personal Injury Case

September 15th, 2017

Personal injury statute of limitations

The statute of limitations is a state law that sets strict time limits for filing a personal injury claim in court. Each state has a different statute of limitations based on the type of claim. Since the statute of limitations is a strict deadline, failure to file a personal injury claim within the time limit can lead to dismissal of the case.

The Standard Statute of Limitations for Filing a Personal Injury Case

Different states have different statutes of limitation for filing a personal injury claim depending on the type of claim a plaintiff plans to file. The statute of limitations comes into play from the time a plaintiff sustains injuries.

Exceptions to the Statute of Limitations

There are a few exceptions to the statute of limitations in which a personal injury claim can be filed after the standard statute of limitations deadline has expired. These exceptions fall under the “discovery rule.” This rule is applicable in situations when:

  • The injured person did not know that he or she was injured.
  • The injured person did not know that the potential defendant’s negligent actions may have caused the injury.

In addition to the discovery rule, there are other ways in which the statute of limitations can be extended.

  • If a potential defendant flees the state after the incident, the time period for filing a personal injury claim against that potential defendant will be increased.
  • If the injured party is a minor, disabled or mentally ill, the time period for filing a personal injury claim against that potential defendant will be increased.

Contact Us

If you have been injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, contact a qualified personal injury lawyer immediately to make sure that you do not miss your state’s statute of limitations. At Dervishi Law Group, P.C., we are experienced in handling personal injury cases. We can successfully guide you through the process.
