Control Your Case by Retaining Our Easton PA Personal Injury Lawyers

Most personal injury cases that are brought in Northhampton County involve the law of negligence. A personal injury attorney Easton PA might see motor vehicle accidents, pedestrian and bicycle accidents, construction or industrial accidents, nursing home negligence or even medical malpractice. Sometimes, accidents result in fatalities, so wrongful death cases are filed too.

Proving Negligence

When an injury victim bases a claim or lawsuit on negligence, he or she must prove its elements. Failure to prove any single element of negligence will cause the entire case to fail. Here are the elements that must be proved:

  • That the defendant owed the claimant a duty of care.
  • There was a breach of that duty.
  • The breach of that duty caused the accident and injuries suffered by the claimant.
  • The claimant suffered legally recognized damages.

Damages

Assuming that the claimant proves negligence, he or she is entitled to compensation. Here’s what types of compensation an injury victim might be entitled to:

  • Past and future medical bills.
  • Past and future lost earnings.
  • Any permanent disability or disfigurement.
  • Pain and suffering.
  • Diminished quality of life.
  • Other significant damages in the event of a wrongful death.
