Do I Have Grounds for a Car Accident Claim in Tampa?

In order to obtain compensation for injuries caused in car accident, you will need to demonstrate that another person or company was negligent. Negligence is a legal principle of common law or elaborated by a judge that has evolved with public opinion over time. This is a flexible standard that has been adopted in every state in the country, although the way that other judges, attorneys, and state juries interpret the negligence standard may differ. A person is negligent when he fails to exercise the level of care expected of a reasonably prudent person in similar circumstances. In other words, a person may be negligent by creating unreasonable risk to others. To prove a negligence case, you will need to show:

1) that you were owed a duty of care;
2) that duty of care was breached;
3) that the breach of duty was the direct cause of your harm;
4) and that your suffered some form of damages

You must demonstrate all four elements for a jury to judge. That is why it very important to hire an experienced car accident attorney to represent and help you, with your car accident claim.

At AJK Legal we understand that not all accidents end in a legal claim. Not all accidents lend themselves to a worthwhile legal claim. Not all accidents result in a legal claim that an attorney is willing to pursue. Many accidents that cause injury carry some legal rights (for example, workers' compensation benefits), while there are some accidents that cause serious injury or death that create legal claims that are worth pursuing (even in cases where you could get legal benefits, such as workers' compensation benefits). Investigating and protecting the scene and evidence of the accident and obtaining top-level experts in the vast majority of cases is essential: the sooner the better. The other party already has investigators, appraisers, attorneys and experts involved in serious accident cases.
