Four Elements of Personal Injury Claims

Although most accidents can call for a personal injury claim, not all do. There must be four examinable elements to the situation that justify it as a personal injury claim or lawsuit.

The four elements of all valid personal injury claims are:

  • Duty of care: The defendant must have owed a duty of care to the claimant or plaintiff. As a member of society, you owe a general duty of care to everyone around you, and they owe it back to you. Essentially, you must not act negligently or maliciously if it would mean putting someone in danger.
  • Breach of duty: The defendant must have done something to breach the duty of care that you were owed. A breach of duty is usually exemplified as something that the average reasonable person would not do, such as driving drunk.
  • Injury: The breach of duty carried out by the defendant must have been the direct cause of the claimant’s injury. If the cause is not clear or established through evidence, then the claim will falter.
  • Damage: Lastly, and perhaps the easiest element to prove, the injury suffered by the claimant must have resulted in damage, like medical bills and lost wages. In rare cases, a claim can be brought if the injury only results in abstract damages, like emotional trauma, pain, and suffering.

Damages You Might be Able to Pursue

The financial damage owed to you from the defendant is the foundation of your personal injury claim. While getting a sense of justice from winning a claim is great, knowing that you will be financially stable after a serious accident is arguably much better for most clients. We want to secure every single penny owed to you by examining as many insurance policies as possible that apply to your case.

Your injury claim could end with you being provided money to help pay for:

  • Medical bills
  • Missing wages
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent disfigurement
  • And more

Start Your Case without Risking Your Wallet

To make pursuing compensation simple and stress-free, our Iowa City personal injury attorneys offer free initial case consultations that don’t require you to sign anything. If you want to keep looking for a law firm to represent you after meeting with us, or if we both decide that your case is not a right fit for our firm, then you won’t have to pay a dime and you won’t break any sort of legal contract.

Also, we are proud to offer contingency fee agreements to our personal injury clients. With a contingency fee, you only pay our attorney fees if we win your case by ending it with an award or settlement in your favor. There is virtually no risk in pursuing compensation when you allow us to assist or represent you.
