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.
