Defining a Personal Injury Case

An experienced Florida personal injury attorney at Leighton Law will help you determine if your injury qualifies for a personal injury claim or lawsuit. To have a valid claim, we must show that your injury was directly caused by negligence, intentional harm or strict liability, which involves a business or individual who produced, sold or distributed a defective product.

Most cases involve negligence, which means the other entity or person failed to show reasonable care. To prove negligence, we will investigate your accident to prove four key factors:
Duty of care. This means the third party had an obligation to show reasonable care to avoid injury to you.
Breach of duty. This means the negligent person or business exposed to to substantial risk, knowingly or otherwise.
Direct cause. This means the action, or lack of action, by the third party directly caused your injury.
Harm. This means we need to show you suffered a loss from the injury. Loss includes expenses for medical bills, reduced work capacity, lost wages and pain and suffering.
