Hyannis & Cape Cod Personal Injury Attorney

Proven Lawyers Protecting Your Right to Compensation: (508) 966-7254

Victims who suffer injuries in preventable accidents caused by the negligent or wrongful acts of others have legal rights – including the right to pursue a personal injury case against the at-fault party. When successful, personal injury claims can allow victims to hold defendants accountable for their negligence, and liable for the damages they suffer as a result, including the costs of medical treatment, lost income caused by missing work, and their pain and suffering, among other damages.

Although victims have available pathways to secure justice and compensation following preventable injuries, there is never any guarantee they’ll be automatically awarded damages, or that they’ll secure the full amount of compensation they deserve. That’s especially true when defendants, corporations, and insurance companies do all they can to pay as little as possible. To level the playing field, you need to work with proven lawyers.

Negligence, Fault & Liability: Building a Successful Case

Personal injury claims are centered on proving negligence, fault, and liability. While every case involves unique facts and circumstances, they all depend on your ability as a victim to show that another party should be held at-fault for your causing your accident and injuries. This means, generally, proving the following:

  • A defendant owed you a legal duty – Any successful personal injury claim will need to show the defendant owed you a legal duty of care. This can vary depending on the circumstances, but generally means the defendant had some type of legal obligation to ensure your safety – whether it be a legal duty to safely operate their motor vehicle (as all motorists have), a duty to ensure their property is free from potential hazards, or a duty to abide by safety regulations.
  • The duty was breached – When you file a personal injury claim, you allege the defendant failed to uphold their legal duty. Often, this arises from negligence, which means you need to prove how a defendant was negligent, and how that constituted a breach of duty. For example, motorists are obligated by law to safely operate their vehicles. Proving that a driver chose to drink and get behind the wheel, then, would be an explicit breach of this duty. The same concept applies to property owners who have a duty to ensure the safety of their premises, but who failed to address known hazards that later led to your injury.
  • Causation – It is not enough to prove a defendant was negligent; you need to prove how that negligence more likely than not caused your accident and injuries. This introduces the important question of whether or not an accident and injury were likely to occur if a defendant had fulfilled their legal obligation to take steps that reduce risks and ensure safety. A motorist who drove drunk, for example, more likely than not caused your accident because intoxication severely compromises their driving abilities and may have led to any number of unsafe driving behaviors, such as speeding, running a red light, or making an unsafe lane change.
  • Damages – You need to prove a preventable accident and injury caused actual damages. These damages can take the form of economic losses, such as those caused by medical bills or lost work wages, or non-economic damages, such as your pain and suffering, disfigurement, loss of quality of life, and other emotional injuries.

Proving these essential elements demands the attention of experienced and resourceful attorneys who can conduct investigations, reconstruct accidents, and piece together the evidence and arguments to support your claim for damages. It also requires an ability to effectively fight back against insurance companies that want to avoid liability and payouts, as well as the ability to take a case to trial when necessary. Our attorneys know how to do just that, and apply the full scope of our knowledge and experience when working even the most difficult personal injury cases.
