Committed And Experienced Personal Injury Representation
After a personal injury, there is no guarantee that you will receive the compensation you deserve that can cover all the costs of the accident. Fighting for a fair settlement is especially hard when you are in poor health after your accident. Thankfully, you do not have to do it by yourself.
Here at Wallace Law Firm, I offer my clients a unique approach in my legal representation. I make sure my clients know exactly what is happening in their case, and what they can expect to happen. I never leave my clients in the dark while I advocate for them. I want to help you secure the best possible outcome in your claim, and I have the skills and experience to prove negligence in your claim.
How To Pursue A Claim
Personal injury torts can encompass many types of claims or lawsuits. They are largely divided into two types of actions: negligent or intentional. Some types of negligent acts include car accidents, professional malpractice and injuries while on a property.
For proving negligence, you need to establish:
- A duty owed to you – Most people only owe you the duty to act reasonably.
- Breach of duty – Did they act reasonably, or did they owe you a greater duty?
- Causation – A breach of their duty must have caused a negative outcome.
- Proximity – Negative outcome must be close in time, space or expected result.
- Injury – Result must be a type of harm our society recognizes.
- Damages – Economic losses include medical bills, lost wages and property; noneconomic is the infamous pain and suffering.
Let me review your unique situation to gather the supporting evidence you need in your personal injury claim. When the compensation you receive for your injuries can define how well you recover from your accident, do not settle for less when it comes to what you can earn.
