Recovering Compensation For Victims Of Carelessness

The laws allow an injured person to receive compensation for harm caused by someone else's carelessness. Available compensation may include medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and more. At the law firm of Veron, Bice, Palermo & Wilson, LLC, we can help you get the compensation you deserve.

The Three Elements Of A Personal Injury Case

Many times, victims aren't quite certain whether or not they have a personal injury case. In order for a lawsuit to be successful, three elements must be in place:

  • A legal duty between the defendant (the one responsible for the wrongdoing) and the plaintiff (the victim)
  • A breach of that duty by the defendant
  • Damage to the plaintiff because of that breach

In other words, the defendant was supposed to do something a certain way, but didn't. As a result, the plaintiff got hurt. A driver was supposed to stop at a red light, but ran through it instead and hit the victim. A doctor was supposed to review medical charts before prescribing a powerful medication, but neglected to do so and the victim suffered serious complications. An employer was supposed to train employees on the use of powerful chemicals, but failed to do so and the employee suffered chemical exposure.
