or party was responsible for causing your injury and the resulting losses
that you are facing as a result. This can range from the actions of one

for transporting the items, the employer of the person that harmed you,
and more. With so many different options, it is important that you explore
all possible options for proving liability that can work on maximizing

Do I have a personal injury claim?
There are three primary grounds for personal injury claims. One of these
must be established if an injured party is to hold another person or a
business responsible for the injuries he or she has experienced, in order
to seek complete
financial compensation for these.
By reviewing your case, Smith & Stallworth, Attorneys at Law can work
to determine the best strategy to proving the responsible party's
accountability for your injuries. This is typically based upon one of
the three grounds:
Negligence - This is the most common grounds for personal injury claims nationwide.
It involves a party being held accountable due to a failure to act with
reasonable caution or care under the circumstances. An example may be
a driver who is speeding and causes a car accident.
Intentional Conduct - Though not often associated with personal injury claims, intentional
conduct may provide an injured party with the grounds to seek compensation.
A case of this kind may involve an intentional attack or assault that
causes a victim to be injured. The defendant in the case may also face
criminal charges for his or her conduct.
Strict Liability - In this type of personal injury claim, the injured party does not need
to prove intentional or unintentional conduct on the part of the defendant.
Strict liability refers to the defendant's accountability regardless
of specific intent. An example would be a product liability claim filed
against a manufacturer for a dangerous or
defective product that caused an unsuspecting consumer injury.
