Experienced Personal Injury Attorneys Who Know The Process

Of the many practice areas The Bolger Law Firm handles, personal injury cases tend to have the greatest variability. There are several reasons for this tendency. One is that a case of personal injury could result from a wide variety of scenarios. Motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accident, workplace injuries, medical malpractice, inadequate safety measures, faulty commercial products, physical assault, and other sources of neglect could cause harmful personal injury and justify litigating a liability case. No two types of litigatory action are alike. But another reason is that cases of personal injuries affect clients’ entire lives – loss of earning capacity, property damage, ongoing medical bills, endless insurance claims, and a drastic reduction in quality of life.

As a Fairfax personal injury attorney whose foremost mission is ensuring his clients gain a realistic understanding of their cases’ potential outcomes, Richard Bolger believes people should understand a few essential basics of civil liability law. Being knowledgeable about the burdens of proof in bringing a personal injury case can make a more productive attorney-client relationship during the lawsuit. Therefore, it’s good advice for clients of any personal injury lawyer to know that:

Plaintiffs seeking damages typically need to show proof that the defending parties behaved negligently. Being at fault by reason of negligence is defined as “…failure to use reasonable care to avoid harm to another person or to do that which a reasonable person might do in similar circumstances.”

These are the circumstances that must be shown and proven in court by the plaintiff:

  • The defendant — perhaps an employer, a healthcare provider, a caretaker or owner of dangerous premises, or a motor vehicle driver — was negligent in the “duty of care.”
  • The defendant breached the duty of care by willingly or mistakenly foregoing safety or responsibility.
  • Injuries must have occurred.
  • These injuries must have a direct relationship to the neglectful actions of the defendant.

Presenting arguments to juries or insurance companies that result in demonstrable proofs of all these legal elements requires careful attention, a calm approach and a broad range of knowledge that comes from experience. That’s the distinct advantage you gain when working with Bolger Law of Fairfax as your personal injury lawyers in Virginia.
