If you suffered an injury in a car accident, you may have a claim for damages against the at-fault driver and/or another party. The same may be true if you sustained an injury in a different type of accident, such as a dog attack, slip and fall, workplace accident or due to a defective product. You could have a claim if someone else caused your injuries through an act of negligence, intentional misconduct or a breach of duty of care.
Your personal injury lawyer in Gwinnett County will need to prove four main things to successfully obtain an award for your damages: someone owed you a duty of care, breached this duty, caused your injuries and you suffered damages as a result. With these four elements, you will have the foundation for a personal injury claim. The exact laws surrounding your claim, however, will depend on the case type and other factors.
