Liability in a Personal Injury Claim

One of the most important factors in a personal injury case is to establish liability. Once it is known who is responsible for your accident, you can take the next step toward recovering compensation from that party. Problems can arise, however, whenever the responsible party denies liability and fights your claim. In such cases, you need a New York City personal injury lawyer who can investigate your case and gather valuable evidence in order to establish liability and win the compensation you deserve.

What is needed to establish liability?

In order to prove that another party is liable for your damages, there are several things that need to be established. Negligence is a key factor that can be used to prove liability. Accidents become more likely when a person demonstrates negligence while driving, when maintaining their property, when practicing medicine, or in any other area. By retaining an attorney, you can investigate the circumstances of your accident and gather evidence to prove that the other party was acting negligently or recklessly.

Types of Negligence & Liability

Liability takes many forms. In car accidents, a driver can be liable due to negligence, recklessness, distraction, fatigue, or intoxication. An individual can be liable for a slip and fall accident if he or she does not safely maintain their property. Doctors, surgeons, and other medical professionals can be liable for medical malpractice if your injuries were caused by their carelessness or negligence. Many accidents are the direct result of someone else’s negligence, and an attorney from Jaroslawicz & Jaros, PLLC can help you prove who is liable for your accident.
