Pursuing Justice After a Wrongful Injury

An unexpected accident can have life-altering repercussions for injured victims, from long-term medical care to employment changes.

4 Steps to Prove Liability in a Personal Injury Case

In a personal injury lawsuit, the existence of injuries is never a guarantee that compensation will be awarded. This is largely because the "burden of proof" in personal injury law rests on the plaintiff, meaning the victim is responsible for showing that the negligent party's actions caused their injury. 

To successfully recover damages, the injured party must demonstrate by a preponderance of the evidence (e.g., it is “more likely than not”) that the defendant’s negligence resulted in the accident and ensuing injuries. In these cases, assistance from a knowledgeable personal injury attorney can prove invaluable. 

Our lawyers help clients prove liability in personal injury lawsuits by establishing these core elements:

  1. The defendant owed the victim a duty of care. The plaintiff is responsible for showing that the offending party owed them a duty of care. For example, in a car accident, it can be argued that drivers have a duty to obey traffic laws to protect themselves and fellow drivers. 
  2. The defendant breached their duty of care. The injured party must show that the defendant breached their duty. For instance, in a car accident resulting from running a red light, it can be argued that the offending driver breached their duty of care by failing to obey traffic laws. 
  3. The breach of duty resulted in direct harm to the victim. Next, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant’s negligent actions directly caused their injury. It’s crucial to consult with a trusted personal injury lawyer who can help fortify your claim with sufficient evidence. 
  4. The victim suffered compensatory damages. To recover damages in a personal injury lawsuit, the injured party must show that they suffered compensatory damages as a result. If the victim cannot be compensated for identifiable losses, the case may be dismissed.

Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney? 

While securing representation isn’t required after a wrongful injury, working with a trusted lawyer is paramount to recovering damages in a personal injury lawsuit. Without a thorough knowledge of Texas law, understanding your legal rights after a wrongful injury can be challenging. 

Moreover, insurance companies and other powerful entities have a longstanding reputation for deceiving plaintiffs in court, such as offering lowball settlements, downplaying the true value of personal injury claims, or using intentionally complex legal jargon to mislead and confuse injured parties.
