How to know if you have a personal injury case? Before filing an injury related lawsuit, it’s important to know what kind of case your accident fits into. In terms of personal injury cases, there are a few key factors that must be present in your situation that would lead to filing. The top three are:
The responsible party was negligent. For example, if a driver hit an innocent victim’s car because he ignored a red light, the driver, under the law, would be considered negligent.
The negligence caused the personal injury. In the above example, if the innocent victim sustained a broken leg and arm, as well as severe headaches as a result of the crash, the driver’s negligence would be considered to have caused the personal injury. Without their negligence, the injury may not have occurred.
The injury resulted in harm in which the injured party may be compensated. In the above example, if the innocent victim’s broken arm and leg resulted in medical bills, lost wages, and/or pain and suffering, the injury would be considered to have resulted in compensatory damages.
According to the New York Department of Health, the rate of death from injuries in the state of New York is approximately 40 deaths for every 100,000 people. The current hospitalization rate from injury is 823 per 100,000 New Yorkers, or almost 1% of the population. This means that injury can affect anyone at any time.
