People often refer to these claims as negligence cases. In simple terms, negligence means that someone was careless in their conduct towards you. Negligence occurs when someone does something that they should not have done under the circumstances; or, they fail to do something which they should have done under the circumstances. Sometimes, people owe you a duty to act like any other reasonable person under the same or similar circumstances. Other times, the law may require a more specific duty of care depending upon the circumstances of the situation. If someone fails to act like a reasonable person, or they fail to comply with the law, they may be liable for any injuries resulting to you.
If you have been injured because of someone’s negligence or carelessness, you may be entitled to damages to compensate you for your injuries.
The type of damages you may recover depends upon the facts of your case. Injured people sometimes seek damages for the following:
- Past, present and future medical bills;
- Past, present and future lost wages;
- Impairment of earning capacity if someone can no longer do the same type of work and suffers a decrease in earnings;
- Pain and suffering damages;
- Mental anguish and grief damages;
- Damages for embarrassment, humiliation and shame;
- Punitive damage where the conduct of the offending party was especially reckless or outrageous;
- Loss of consortium for spouses of an injured person.
We are beholden to no one but you. You deserve justice.
You may be entitled to other types of damages, depending upon the facts of your case and the legal issues. Other types of damages may be recoverable in cases resulting in death. If someone’s negligence caused death, the personal representative of the decedent’s estate may bring a Wrongful Death Action, or a Survival Action.
There are important time constraints in bringing legal actions for negligence. These time constraints are sometimes referred to as the statute of limitations. In many negligence cases, an injured person must file a legal action within two years from the date of the negligent act. The statute of limitations may be different in your case, depending upon the type of claims involved. If you or a family member has been injured as the result of someone’s negligence, please do not hesitate to act. Speak to a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible so you can protect your claim before time runs out.
