What is Liability?
The degree of responsibility of a person towards performing his duties is defined as liability. Sometimes in accidents, several parties may be liable – like in case of a trucking accident. You have to provide valid evidence to prove if the cause.
What is Negligence?
The act of carelessness of a person towards meeting his/her duties is negligence. For instance, if you hurt yourself on a broken stair of a building, then the landlord is held liable for the cause as he/she was negligent towards getting stair repaired on time. Reports show that the majority of the personal injury cases are caused due to negligence.
What are Damages?
A personal injury victim goes through a lot of stress and anxieties due to the aftermath of a severe accident. Injuries often include physical and mental sufferings. Damages and injuries vary from victims to victims. Some of which include:
- Loss of earning (present and future)
- Medical expense and hospital bills
- Significant Surgery charges and cost of ambulance
- Pain and suffering
- Household expenses
- Post-operation care expense
- Mental anguish
- Recovery period
What is a Statute of Limitations?
The law gives a fixed amount of time to every victim to file an injury or accident case, which is called the Statute of Limitations. No matter how severe the damages were, you cannot file a lawsuit to receive compensation for your loss if you have missed the statute of limitations of the case. As it varies from one state to state, it is highly imperative to consult an attorney soon after an accident to learn about your legal options.
