Liability in a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Posted on:5/13/2013
Personal injury attorneys understand that the standard of care a reasonable person would exercise in a situation will depend in the facts and circumstances.

A professional cab driver is expected to exercise a higher standard of care that an ordinary person. A person is negligent if he or she does something he or she shouldn’t have done, or when he or she doesn’t do something he or she should have done. For example, not stopping at a stop sign will be considered as negligence. Your personal injury lawyer will review your case and determine who is liable for your injuries.


An experienced personal injury attorney can help you determine the liabilities of the various parties liable for your injury. Liability, or who is at fault, will vary from situation to situation. There are laws that determine the standard of care an individual is held to. While driving a person has to follow the traffic rules. If the person causes an accident because of his or her failure to follow the traffic rules, he or she will be liable for the injuries resulting from the accident.


Even though personal injury lawyers aren't doctors, an experienced personal injury attorney will have a sound understanding of various medical conditions as it relates to physical trauma. This kind of insight will come in handy when structuring the right settlement offer with insurance companies. A personal injury attorney who understands the lasting impact of physical trauma is able to effectively communicate to the judge and jury as to how those injuries will impact the quality of the client's life.
