Key Points to Identifying Negligence in your Indiana Injury Claim

negligence-personal-injuryFiling negligence in your Indiana injury claim may get complicated and confusing. There are many parts of a negligence case that you should be aware of so that you’re not caught off guard later on. Indiana attorneys can help clarify and explain the parts and pieces.

Fundamentals of an Indiana Injury Claim

As the injured party, you’re known as the plaintiff. As the plaintiff, you’ll be claiming that the other party or individual in the accident is at fault. This makes him or her the defendant.

The injuries sustained are called damages (physical injury, property damage, emotional hardship, etc). The repayment for damages is called a duty, which is approved by the court. Be wary; it is possible that the defendant may attempt to undermine the duty and not pay it in full. This would be a breach of duty.

In order to receive the damages, the plaintiff’s claims must be proven through cause in fact and proximate cause.

It would be beneficial to speak with Indiana accident attorneys to discuss your concerns. They’ll walk you through the process and provide you with detailed answers to any questions you may have. Your attorney will also have experience in handling cases like yours and will be able to help ensure the best possible results for your claim.
