A lawsuit’s determination is based on liability and damages. Liability refers to the person at fault for your injuries through negligence, strict liability, or intentional wrong.
If a person did not take actions, which could have prevented your accident, that person’s negligence may be at fault. When the appropriate use of a manufacturer or supplier’s product causes injury, that manufacturer or supplier may be at fault through strict liability. A person who realizes his actions will cause harm but continues to act can be held liable for his intentional wrong.
The other factor in a personal injury lawsuit is damages resulting from the liable party’s actions. Damages are the physical, mental, and emotional harm directly caused by your accident. In order to more easily prove these damages, it is advisable to keep a detailed log of the accident and its effects on your life.
