Macon Personal Injury Attorney
If someone else’s negligence leaves you injured in an accident, an experienced Macon personal injury attorney can help build your strongest claim – in pursuit of just compensation that covers your physical, financial, and emotional losses. Personal injury claims are typically based on negligence, and better understanding how they work can help you proceed with greater confidence.
The Other Party Owed You a Duty of Care
To begin, the other party in your claim must have owed you a duty of care. This means that he or she had a responsibility regarding your safety, and other motorists are a prime example. When we drive, we owe one another a duty of care to drive safely and adhere to the rules of the road.
The Other Party Breached the Duty of Care Owed
The second component of personal injury claims is that the other party breached the duty of care owed to you, which typically means that he or she engaged in some kind of negligence. For example, when the accident is a traffic accident, one of the following types of negligence often plays a role:
- Excess speed
From here, you’ll need to demonstrate that the other party’s negligence directly caused the accident that left you injured.
Finally, the accident in question must have caused you to suffer losses that are addressed by the law as legal damages, which are generally categorized in the following groups:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income
- Physical and financial pain and suffering
