Can I File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
There are many factors that determine whether your claim is viable, and only a qualified attorney will be able to determine whether you have a case. In general, most personal injury lawsuits are filed under the idea that another person or entity was negligent in causing your injury. Negligence refers to the failure to follow reasonable standards of care to protect others against the risk of unreasonable harm.
For instance, a driver may be considered negligent if he or she exceeds posted speed limits and causes a crash. A doctor may be considered negligent if he or she fails to order a standard test that another physician in that position would have ordered, and a patient is misdiagnosed as a result. There is also negligent behavior that is also reckless, such as a crash caused by someone driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
