How do I know if I have a personal injury lawsuit?

November 30, 2009

If you were injured because someone failed to act responsibly, you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit.

Essentially, three criteria must be met in order to bring a personal injury lawsuit:

  1. You were injured.
  2. The injuries were caused by someone else.
  3. You suffered a monetary loss because of your injuries.

Most personal injury lawsuits are based on a legal concept known as negligence. A person is negligent if they fail to exercise the caution that a reasonable person would have under the same circumstances.

When someone’s negligent actions cause injury to another person, they have committed a tort. A tort is the basis for a personal injury lawsuit. If Person A’s negligence causes an accident that injures Person B, then Person A can be held legally liable for Person B’s damages.
