Injury Claims in Caroline County
There are a multitude of different circumstances in the county that could cause debilitating injuries to unsuspecting victims. Motorists who are passing through the region on Interstate 95 at excessive speeds could cause collisions that lead to devastating injuries to drivers of other vehicles and their passengers. Motor vehicle accident claims often become complicated due to the insurance companies, who often offer low settlement amounts to injured victims in order to limit their potential economic exposure. Some other types of personal injury cases include:
- Medical malpractice
- Workplace accidents
- Animal attacks
- Sexual assaults
- Assault, battery, and other intentional torts
- Slip and falls
- Products liability
Injury Claim Process
In a personal injury case, a plaintiff may seek compensation for the harms and losses that they have suffered as a result of their injuries, including physical pain and suffering, medical bills, property damage, as well as lost wages from missing work, as well as other damages. In order to be successful in a personal injury case, it is wise to consult with a skilled Caroline injury attorney who knows how to navigate the legal system and who will fight tirelessly on your behalf to obtain the compensation that you deserve for your harms and losses. A plaintiff bears the burden of proving their case by a preponderance of the evidence, which is different than the burden of proof in a criminal case.
Establishing Liability in Injury cases
Defendants and their insurers in personal injury cases will also frequently deny liability as a means to avoid paying any compensation at all. A seasoned Caroline County personal injury lawyer will use any and all available evidence to show that the victim’s injuries were caused by the defendant’s actions (or inaction). Personal injury claims also have the added benefit of protecting other members of the community from suffering the same fate as the victim. If the at-fault parties are forced to pay compensation for the harms that they cause, they will be deterred from making the same negligent, careless, or reckless mistakes again.
