What Is Liability And Why Does It Matter To My Injury Case?

In a personal injury claim, liability refers to legal responsibility for the collision. Liability is one of the essential requirements of a successful case.

If you or a loved one was injured due to another party's negligence, you may be able to hold that party accountable. Filing a successful claim against the responsible party could allow you to cover all the extra costs you now face due to that party's mistake, including punitive damages. With extensive experience in personal injury, D'Alessandro & Wright, LLC, is ready to review your case to determine a strategy to prove liability.

Did Your Injuries Result From Someone Else's Negligence?

Proving negligence is a common way to show that a person or organization is liable for your damages. In some situations, multiple parties may share liability if their negligence contributed to your collision.

Common forms of negligence in personal injury lawsuits include:

  • Intentional harm
  • Acts of recklessness
  • Causing serious car or truck collisions
  • Creating or failing to eliminate workplace hazards

As the claimant, you bear the burden of proving that the other party was negligent and therefore liable for the damages. You do not need to face this monumental task alone. Our Providence and Warwick lawyers are skilled investigators, advisers and champions who can help you find evidence to support liability.
