At Duffy & Feemster, we understand that dealing with an injury caused by the negligence of another is stressful. You may be seriously injured and unable to work, and the medical bills continue to mount. If you or a loved one was hurt due to the negligence of another party, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
Every year, thousands of people are hurt due to negligent conduct. While much has been done in terms of the safety of vehicles and consumer products in general, the fact remains that negligent conduct leads to injury accidents which affect thousands of Americans every year.
It is estimated that over 100,000 people suffer from fatal injuries and ten times more are injured every year in accidents caused by negligence or careless behavior.
All personal injury cases begin with the concept of negligence. If you’ve been hurt by another’s action or inaction, negligence can be involved. Negligence is defined as the failure to act as a reasonably prudent person would have under the same circumstances.
If you or a loved one has been injured and you believe that it was due to negligence, the following elements must be present:
The responsible party had a legal duty to conform to a standard of care;
- This duty was breached;
- The breach caused injury;
- The injury has caused damage to the victim.
