Negligence Explained

If you were injured in an accident or some type of incident you may be entitled to compensation for the injuries you have suffered.  The amount of your compensation will not only be dependant on the extent of your injury it will also largely be based on the negligence of the parties involved.  Your injuries may be the result of the action/inaction of another or you may have been injured as a result of your own actions combined with those of another.

What if the accident was partially my fault?

Accidents are sometimes extremely complex occurances with many combinations of actions.  You may have been injured partially as a result of your own fault, however you may still be entitled to compensation for your injuries.  Comparative negligence, is a theory which allows an indiviudal to recover damages for their injuries based on the amount of fault associated with the accident.  The amount of damages which you receive will be reduced by the amount of your own negligence.  Nonetheless, you may still be entitled to compensation for your injuries sustained by the negligence of others involved.

What if I have injured a part of my body which has already been injured?

On many occassions accidents have resulted in a reinjury of a previously injured body part or the reserection of a prior injury which had been cured.  You may be entitled to compesation for your injury to the extent that the injury caused a worsening or resurrection of a previously documented injury.  Don’t assume there is nothing that can be done, get answers now by calling The Law Office of Richard J.
