What Is A Polk County Personal Injury Case?

While the term “personal injury accident” is commonly used, the legal system distinguishes between genuine accidents and injuries caused by another party’s fault. When injuries could have been prevented, it’s not considered a genuine accident. In such cases, the injured party, or the surviving family in fatal incidents, has the right to pursue legal action against the at-fault parties. Legal liability for personal injuries can be based on:

  • Negligence: Negligent conduct is the basis for most personal injury accident lawsuits. Negligence requires proving four elements: that the defendant owed a duty of care to the injured victim, that the defendant breached this duty, that the breach led to injury, and that the victim suffered damages as a result.
  • Intentional conduct: Intentional wrongdoing that results in injury can also be the basis for a personal injury lawsuit. For instance, if you are the victim of an assault, you can hold the person who assaulted you responsible for your injuries through a civil personal injury lawsuit in addition to any criminal charges that might be filed against them.
  • Strict liability: Strict liability holds a party responsible for injuries without the need to prove negligence or wrongful conduct. Defective products, for example, can open up anyone in the “chain of distribution” to liability for injuries without the need to prove intentional or negligent conduct on their part.

Personal injury incidents can occur under various circumstances, including common scenarios like car accidents, truck accidents, and boating accidents as well as because of a slip and fall accident, a defective product, or a wrongful death. Because of the numerous and varied ways in which a personal injury accident can occur, it is always in your best interest to meet with an experienced attorney to discuss those circumstances and find out if they form the basis of an actionable lawsuit.

What Compensation Might I Be Entitled to in a Polk County Personal Injury Accident Case?

In personal injury incidents caused by another party, the law provides victims with the opportunity to hold the at-fault party accountable through a personal injury lawsuit. Victims may be entitled to recover both economic and non-economic damages, which can encompass:

  • Medical and hospital expenses
  • Rehabilitation and other healthcare costs
  • Lost income, both past and future
