Wausau Personal Injury Lawyer

Proving that Someone Else’s Carelessness Caused an Accident

Establishing that a defendant acted negligently is key to the success of your personal injury case. From a legal standpoint, negligence refers to a failure to exercise due care.

There are many situations where you might owe someone else a duty of care. For example, if you are driving a car on a public road, you must watch out for other motorists, pedestrians, or bicyclists.

To prove that someone else acted carelessly and caused your injury, you need to demonstrate that:

  • The defendant had a duty to the plaintiff
  • The defendant breached the duty
  • The breach directly caused the accident that wounded the plaintiff
  • The plaintiff suffered an actual, documentable injury

A hardworking attorney in Wausau could strengthen your personal injury claim by helping show that a defendant hurt you by failing to exercise due care.

What Damages do People Collect in Personal Injury Cases?

Compensation in personal injury cases aims to award people money for the harm they experienced due to a defendant’s carelessness. Common issues covered by monetary damages include medical expenses, lost time at work, and appointments with a doctor. Financial compensation could also provide payments for more subjective factors like emotional distress, physical pain, scarring, disability, or reduced enjoyment of daily life.

In some instances, you might also become entitled to collect punitive damages, which are additional payments that intend to punish a defendant for extremely reckless behavior. For instance, if a motorist drove their car while under the influence of drugs or alcohol and hit you, punitive damages might apply.

Meanwhile, you might collect less compensation if you are partially responsible for your own injuries. For instance, Wisconsin Statute §895.045 states that you need to pay damages equal to the level of blame you face for an accident.

A diligent attorney in Wausau could help you determine the extent of financial compensation you deserve in your personal injury case or fight against someone who claims you are partially to blame.
