Contributory negligence and pre-existing injuries
Not all personal injury cases are cut and dry. Sometimes the victim may be partially responsible for the accident. In these cases, victims still have a legal right to seek compensation for the percentage of their injury that the other party was responsible for.
In other cases, victims may have had a pre-existing injury that was aggravated because of the accident. These victims are still justified in seeking maximum compensation, as the negligent party is liable for making an existing injury worse.
No matter what the difficulties or circumstances are in your case, personal injury lawyer Bart Bernard will tenaciously represent your interests in a negotiation or court of law. From slips and falls to vehicle accidents, product liability, workplace injuries and any other kind of personal injury, you can count on Bart Bernard.
How much can I seek in compensation?
One of the first questions victims ask is how much their case is worth, or how much monetary compensation they can seek. There are many different factors that go into an injury claim’s monetary value.
from minor accidents will be awarded less compensation, while claims from more catastrophic injuries will be awarded more. For example, a personal injury case from a death or traumatic brain injury can be awarded damages in the million dollar range, as it includes compensation for ongoing care, loss of earning capacity, and pain and suffering.
