If the negligence of another party can be proved, the injured party may be entitled to monetary compensation from that party. In the United States, this system is complex and controversial. Oftentimes, having an attorney becomes essential because cases become extremely complex, such as in medical malpractice cases.
To make a claim you must prove the person you believe is responsible for your personal injury, loss or damage:
- Owed you a duty of care and breached the duty of care they owed you.
- You suffered a loss or injury or other damage.
- Your loss, injury or the damage occurred as a result of the breach of the duty of care.
Personal Injuries must be:(1) reasonably foreseeable
(2) there must be a relationship of proximity between the plaintiff and defendant and
(3) it must be 'fair, just and reasonable' to impose liability.
However, these act as guidelines for the courts in establishing a duty of care; much of the principle is still at the discretion of judges.
All of these things need to be shown for a successful claim. There are laws setting out the requirements for making a personal injury claim and legal advice is strongly recommended.
