Do you feel like you’ve been wronged by someone or something? If so, it may be time to consider a personal injury claim.

Every year, thousands of victims in the United States decide to pursue compensation for injuries sustained due to an act of negligence or recklessness, and having a professional legal team by your side can be extremely beneficial when navigating through this process.

This blog post will provide insight into what goes into developing a successful personal injury case and explain the key elements needed for success. Read on to learn more about why it’s important to understand all parts of this process before taking action!

Four Essential Elements of a Personal Injury Case

In order to establish a valid personal injury case, four key elements must be present:

  • Duty of care
  • Breach of duty
  • Causation
  • Damages

Duty of care is the legal obligation owed by one person or entity to another in order for that person or entity to not act negligently toward them or their property.

Breach of duty occurs when this duty is breached through an action or inaction that results in harm being inflicted on the other party.

Causation links the breach of duty with the resulting harm done to the plaintiff (person bringing forth the suit).

Damages are established as a result of said harm, usually in terms of medical bills, lost wages, and/or pain and suffering.

Once all these facets have been satisfactorily proven, the defendant (person or entity being sued) can be held responsible for the resulting damages.
