Reviewing the Process of Filing a Personal Injury Claim

Personal injury claims are often filed by individuals who are injured in accidents caused by the intentional or unintentional negligence of other parties. If you file a personal injury claim, it will only be considered viable if it is proven that the other entity failed to exercise a legal duty owed to you, thus resulting in your injuries. Personal injuries typically result from dog bites, slip and fall accidents, auto accidents, and professional negligence.

Elements that must be proven in a slip-and-fall claim

Too many people make the mistake of thinking that a slip-and-fall accident is little more than the result of a person's clumsiness, or that any injuries suffered would be considered minor. However, the fact is that slipping or tripping accidents have the potential to cause severe injuries. A person could break bones, hit his or her head, or even suffer spinal cord injuries in a serious fall.
