Have you ever gotten the flu or sprained your ankle? Then you know how much more difficult everything in your life can be when your health isn’t well or your body isn’t injured. These injuries are fairly common and most everyone who suffers them ends up making a full recovery. However, when injuries and illness occur on a larger scale, it can have much more serious impacts on an injured person and their family.
Oftentimes, when a person is injured it is due to an accident. Accidents are generally sudden, unexpected and can leave the injured and their family reeling. Car accidents, work accidents, medical injury and many other incidents can leave a person injured. In all of these scenarios and more, a person, business or other related third party could have played a role in causing or failing to prevent a person’s serious personal injury.
At Donovan O'Connor & Dodig, LLP, we know how debilitating and frustrating being injured in an accident can be. Determining negligence or alleged negligent parties, could be obvious or it may not be immediately clear. A full investigation can help to clear up questions that a person has on this topic and can help to build a case against the party or person to seek damages. Damages can cover costs and losses incurred due to the personal injury one has suffered.
For each person who has suffered a serious personal injury, this process can look a little different. However, the ultimate goal is to collect for a party’s failure to uphold a duty of care. We are all indebted to each other in one way or another and can be held accountable for our actions, especially if they hurt or injure someone.
