Proving Negligence in Personal Injury Lawsuits

In personal injury cases, the burden of proof lies with the plaintiff. This means that the injured party is responsible for demonstrating by a preponderance of the evidence—in other words, it is “more reasonable than not”—that the defendant’s negligence directly caused the victim’s injuries. 

To successfully bring a personal injury lawsuit, establish liability, and recover damages, plaintiffs must prove the existence of certain key elements. Our community-driven firm can evaluate the unique circumstances of your personal injury claim to help you establish these core factors. These elements include: 

  • The plaintiff was owed a duty of care. The injured party must prove that the negligent party owed them a “duty of care.” For example, it can be argued that drivers owe fellow drivers a duty of care to operate vehicles safely and follow traffic laws.
  • The defendant breached the duty of care. Once the duty of care has been established, plaintiffs must demonstrate that the negligent party failed to uphold their responsibility. For instance, if a driver caused a car accident by running a red light, it can be argued that they breached their duty of care to fellow motor vehicle operators on the road. 
  • The breach caused harm or injury. To recover damages, injured parties must prove that the negligent party's actions directly resulted in harm or injury. Multiple parties can sometimes be at fault for an accident or injury. Our skilled attorneys can help identify all potential sources of liability to ensure maximum compensation is sought.
  • Damages were incurred as a result of the injury. Finally, plaintiffs must provide evidence of tangible damages resulting from their injuries to receive compensation, such as medical expenses and lost wages. 

Recovering Damages in a Personal Injury Lawsuit

It can be challenging to think clearly after an accident, especially if you walk away with injuries. From affording crucial medical care to missing out on lost earnings during your recovery period, there can be a lot for injured Texans to worry about after sustaining a wrongful injury. At Hilliard Law, we can help you navigate the legal complexities of seeking fair compensation. 

To file a personal injury claim, it’s important to take the following steps:  

  1. Seek medical attention. First and foremost, it's imperative to seek medical care immediately after an accident, regardless of the apparent severity of your injuries. Not only can this contribute to key evidence in a future personal injury lawsuit, but it's essential to rule out severe or life-threatening injuries that may be invisible to victims, such as traumatic brain injuries, organ damage, or internal bleeding. 
  2. Consult with a personal injury attorney. To maximize the value of your claim, seeking sound counsel from a qualified personal injury lawyer is crucial to recovering fair compensation after a wrongful injury.
  3. Investigation. Our firm has decades of experience helping Texans navigate the legal complexities of personal injury law, offering our clients deserved peace of mind while we focus on investigating the circumstances of the accident. We can assist with gathering key evidence, identifying all liable parties who may be liable, and calculating the total value of all applicable damages. 
  4. File a personal injury claim. Our attorneys can help injured parties initiate a personal injury lawsuit in court, ensuring all corresponding paperwork and documentation is submitted correctly and on time. 
  5. Negotiate a fair settlement. Having a personal injury attorney in your corner can prevent insurers from taking advantage of you by pushing lowballed offers or using complex legal jargon to manipulate or confuse you. Our lawyers can pursue full damages on your behalf to ensure you're compensated fairly for both economic and non-economic damages, such as medical care, loss of consortium, pain and suffering, and more. In some instances, our team can also seek to recover punitive damages on your behalf if necessary.

Importance of Securing Representation

Working with a personal injury attorney can mean the difference between recovering damages and walking away with less than you deserve—or worse, empty-handed. While it might be possible to proceed with an attorney in your corner, keep in mind that seeking counsel from a qualified lawyer can prove invaluable to maximizing the value of your claim, as well as ensuring you aren’t taken advantage of by dishonest or manipulative insurance companies, who have a reputation for proposing lowball settlements to avoid fair payouts. 

At Hilliard Law, we help injured Texans with: 

  • Filing a claim: Filing your personal injury claim can entail substantial documentation, evidence, and required paperwork. Our lawyers can ensure that all mandatory forms and required documents are filed correctly and on time to avoid the potential dismissal of your case.
  • Maximizing the value of your claim: Our experienced negotiators have an in-depth knowledge of personal injury law to maximize your claim’s value, evaluate the fullest extent of damages available to you, and protect your rights against manipulative entities—such as insurers or employers—who may attempt to discredit you.
  • Gathering evidence: In personal injury lawsuits, concrete evidence is nonnegotiable to prove negligence in an accident. Our knowledgeable attorneys can help fortify your claim with relevant evidence and arrange witness and expert testimonies when needed to strengthen your case as much as possible.
  • Establishing causation: While there are numerous elements that plaintiffs must prove in a personal injury claim, causation is often the most difficult element to establish in personal injury lawsuits. With over 30 years of experience, our lawyers can strengthen your case with applicable evidence (such as medical documentation, police reports, and eyewitness accounts) to help show that the defendant's negligence caused your injuries. 

If you were wrongfully injured, our determined personal injury lawyers can fight to recover damages on your behalf.
