Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?

How Do I Know if I Have a Personal Injury Case?

When you’ve been injured in a car accident, slip and fall, workplace accident, or another unfortunate event, you may have a personal injury case. Whether or not a lawyer will take your injury case will depend on whether there is evidence of another party’s negligence. If you were not responsible for the accident and you have medical bills, lost wages, or other damages to pay, your case may be valid.

You don’t deserve to suffer because of someone else’s negligence. The personal injury experts at Farah & Farah know how to help you in your time of need. We’ve recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients, and we can help you seek the justice you deserve. Call us now at 877-245-6707 for a free, no-obligation case review. 

What Are the Basic Elements of a Personal Injury Claim?

When filing a personal injury claim, there needs to be proof of negligence to recover your compensation. Negligence has four elements, including:

Duty of Care

Duty of care means that by law, the other party is required to act or behave in a specific way. For example, all drivers must obey traffic laws, and business owners are required to keep their businesses safe for employees and consumers. If the other party owed you a duty of care, you might have a personal injury case.

Breach of Duty

There must also be proof that the other party breached the duty of care. Just because an accident occurred does not mean the duty of care was breached. For example, there needs to be clear evidence that a traffic law was broken or that a property owner failed to do safety checks around their property. 

Direct & Proximate Cause

To get compensation, there must be proof that the breach of duty was the direct cause and primary factor in the injury. If the breach of duty is too far removed from the cause of the accident, you may not have a personal injury case that is worth pursuing.


Perhaps the most important factor in a personal injury case is the severity of injuries or damages incurred. Medical bills, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and other damages are all major factors when trying to recover compensation.
