Wellington Personal Injury Attorney
Once named one of Money Magazine’s top 100 places to live, the Village of Wellington is rather populated for a “village.” While this may lead some to feel that Wellington is a community with a bright future, whenever people live and work in close proximity to one another, personal injury accidents caused by one person’s careless or negligent acts are sure to happen.
The Law Offices of Joseph I. Lipsky, P.A. cannot prevent these terrible and tragic personal injury accidents from occurring, but we can assist you in moving forward beyond these events and in obtaining monetary damages to help you do so.Succeeding in a Wellington Personal Injury Case
The majority of personal injury lawsuits brought in Wellington are premised on allegations that one person’s negligence or carelessness caused injury to another person (the victim or “plaintiff”). In order to have a “successful” personal injury suit, or one that results in a monetary damages award in favor of the plaintiff, the plaintiff must show:
- The other party who caused the accident had a “duty of care” to behave in a certain way. This is rarely a point of contention because the law generally recognizes that each individual owes a duty to all other persons to behave in a reasonably careful manner at all times.
- The other party “breached” this duty by acting carelessly or negligently. If a reasonable person in the shoes of the other party would not have engaged in the same conduct and behavior as the other party did, then this element of the plaintiff’s claim will usually be determined to have been satisfied.
- The other party’s negligent behavior caused the plaintiff’s injuries. The plaintiff must establish (in other words) that his or her injuries either would not have bene as severe or would not have happened at all if the other party had not acted in the careless manner in which he or she did.
- Finally, the plaintiff’s injuries and losses can be compensated through a monetary damages award. If the plaintiff did not incur any medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, or other similar losses, then there is no other “compensation” that a court could provide and a personal injury lawsuit becomes meaningless.
While there is nothing in Florida’s statutes that requires a personal injury victim to obtain legal representation, having an experienced and knowledgeable attorney help you with your case can not only improve your chances of obtaining compensation but in obtaining this compensation quickly.Your Wellington Personal Injury Lawyer is Ready to Assist You
