Determining liability in a claim can be a complex process, but if your lawyer has the proper experience, knowledge, and resources to handle your case, he or she can determine who should be held accountable and then take the necessary steps to prove this.
Liability is defined as legal responsibility for something, particularly costs or damages. In a personal injury case, the liable party would be the individual or company responsible for paying compensation to the injured party. The responsible party in an injury claim may vary depending on the type of case. For a car accident, it may be another driver or perhaps a municipal authority for poor road maintenance. In a dog bite claim, it may be the owner of the dog. With a premises liability claim, it may be the owner of the property where the accident or injury occurred, and for a medical malpractice claim, it may be the doctor, nurse, or other medical professional or facility that was negligent and allowed substandard treatment to occur. Regardless of the particular type of claim you are dealing with or the circumstances surrounding your injuries, we can provide comprehensive legal representation targeted at getting you maximum financial compensation for your injuries.
