When can negligence be proven?
The law requires us to act with reasonable care, but what constitutes "reasonable" is often difficult to pinpoint.

In order to recover damages for your injury, negligence will have to be proven. Negligence can be proven in a variety of circumstances.

What should be my first steps after sustaining a personal injury?
The first step you should take after sustaining an injury from an accident is to obtain medical attention. You will also want to document the logistics of the circumstance and create a record. That step can help protect your claim. Being observant and documenting proof of negligence at the scene of the accident is important.

What is the difference between compensatory and punitive damages?
Compensatory damages are those with the purpose of compensation that are paid back to you for your losses. Compensatory damages can cover economic losses and even pain and suffering. Punitive damages are those used to punish the defendant and to encourage others from acting in a similar manner in the future.

What if I involved in a dangerous activity prior to my injury?
If you were involved in a dangerous activity or were aware of the risk when you engaged in the activity that led to the accident, you will have to be deemed as assuming the risk.
