Negligence in Personal Injury Cases
Personal injury cases generally require the plaintiff to prove the defendant committed some negligence that caused the injury. Negligence occurs when the defendant breaches their duty of care, which leads to the plaintiff’s injuries. When filing an injury claim, it is important to prove the defendant’s negligence and connect it to the plaintiff’s injuries to get financial recovery.
A Georgetown lawyer could cooperate with the plaintiff to conduct an investigation of the personal injury case, including looking at accident reports, law enforcement narratives, recordings, and witness testimony. Depending on the case, expert testimony could be necessary as well. While this process may be complicated, a trained attorney could work through these challenges to seek financial compensation for the plaintiff.
