Elements of a Personal Injury Claim

Injuries or damages that result from another party’s negligence lead to personal injury claims. Therefore, it is vital to understand the elements applicable to such cases.

Duty to Reasonable Care

The existence of a legal duty is an element that your carelessness or negligence claim must satisfy. What entails reasonable care depends on the situation and the circumstances. Learn more about What to Expect from an Injury Lawyer.


Failure to Practice Reasonable Care

Your claim must prove the breach in exercising reasonable care. It involves showing the other party’s contribution to your injuries. A personal injury attorney will go over the aspects of your case to obtain all the details to prove the failure to practice reasonable care.


Causation shows that another party’s failure to practice reasonable care caused your injuries or damages. At Willens Injury Law Offices, we have forged relationships with professionals who can be vital in proving liability. We hire professionals to act as witnesses to prove failure to act according to the set standards.

Suffered Actual Damages

Damages are often the final elements of negligence claims. If you were injured and suffered damages, then you’ll have a valid personal injury claim. If you suffered adverse injuries, your case would be worth pursuing legal action. Some of the damages that may warrant filing a claim include disability, medical costs, pain and suffering, and medical costs.
