Proving Fault

When determining the liable party or parties in an accident, the plaintiff must prove that a defendant failed to act in a way a reasonable person would under similar circumstances. The legal elements a plaintiff must prove are:

  • The defendant owed the victim a duty of care;
  • The defendant breached the duty of care;
  • The direct actions of the defendant caused the plaintiff’s injuries or death; and
  • Damages occurred as a result of the accident

At LAR Legal Group, we conduct a thorough and detailed investigation of every claim. We scrutinize medical and police reports, interview witnesses, and view video surveillance and photographs. As needed, we utilize technical experts and accident reconstruction specialists.

Once liability is established, our attorneys negotiate a settlement with the responsible party or insurance carrier. We are always ready to present a compelling case to a judge and jury if a fair settlement offer is not achieved.


Compensatory and Punitive Damages

Compensation for a personal injury claim can include medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, pain and suffering, scarring and disfigurement, and property damages. For wrongful death, there is additional compensation for funeral and burial expenses, loss of companionship, inheritance, and more. For some personal injury cases, the court may award punitive damages for acts of gross negligence or malicious intent.


Payment Source

Homeowners and commercial property owners generally carry liability insurance to cover personal injuries on their premises. However, when damages exceed the limits of the coverage, the homeowner or commercial property owner may be responsible for the rest.
