What Is a Severe Injury?

A major injury can require multiple surgeries, extensive treatment and rehabilitation and even permanent at-home care. Serious and severe injuries can include:

Proving Negligence in Personal Injury Lawsuits
In cases that involve the victim of an incapacitating injury, our lawyers focus on determining the cause of the injuries and holding all responsible parties accountable for their negligence. In order to prove negligence in personal injury cases, you must establish the following four elements:
- Damages: You must incur actual damages as a result of your injury, such as medical expenses, lost wages or property damage.
- Causation: You must prove that the negligence of someone directly caused the damages you are trying to recoup.
- Duty: You must prove that the negligent party owed you a duty of care or a duty of safety. For example, if you were on someone’s property, that party has a duty to ensure you are safe from harm on their premises.
- Breach of Duty: You must prove that the negligent party failed to uphold their duty. If the duty had not been breached, your injuries would not have occurred.
