All types of injury cases hinge on whether someone was legally responsible
for the accident. The question being asked is essentially whether this
person involved in the accident act with reasonable care or did they act
in a negligent, careless way and so contribute to the accident.
It may have been the case that there was a “duty of care” which
needed to be upheld and can point to a person’s liability if it
was not upheld. All persons must at all times take “reasonable care”
to keep from injuring others, but this care can change depending on the
time and place.
Basic principles are involved as far as obtaining compensation you deserve
for your injuries:
- Establishing that you were careful while another person was acting carelessly
- If a negligent person harms you while working for another, the employer
can be held liable
- The owner of dangerous property or defective products is liable when they
- If you yourself acted carelessly, your compensation could be reduced or negated
- You are not required to prove anything, only to give a reasonable argument
Applying these standards to your accident can help you in negotiating a
fair settlement for your compensation in your injury claim.
