Being involved in a sudden and unexpected accident can be devastating for any resident of Kentucky or West Virginia, as well as their family members. But, unfortunately, personal injury accidents are all too common in America. Car accidents, in particular, happen every day, while other incidents such as injuries from defective products and dangerous property conditions are also common. When a person is injured due to the negligence or recklessness of another party, a personal injury claim in civil court may be an option.
Why should a victim of negligence suffer the financial repercussions of such an incident? Victims may face large and unexpected medical bills, in addition to lost time at work which can result in a loss of income. In a personal injury claim, one of the key parts of the case is to prove exactly how a victim has been impacted financially by the accident and the associated injuries.
The other key parts of a personal injury claim are to show that the other party was in fact negligent or reckless in some way, and that the alleged negligence or reckless behavior did in fact cause the victim’s injuries. No matter the circumstances of how the injury occurred – car accident or otherwise – victims need to fully understand the legal options.
