Proving Liability in Your Personal Injury Claim
Arkansas Personal Injury laws allow anyone who is injured or suffers damages due to someone else’s careless, reckless, or wrongful conduct to bring a Personal Injury claim against the liable party. Whether you were involved in a car accident, hit by a reckless driver while riding your motorcycle, slipped and fell on another person’s property, or were seriously injured by a defective product, you will need to establish that another person or entity is liable for your damages.
Proving liability in a Personal Injury case typically involves proving the following:
- Another person or party owed you a duty of care, meaning they had a responsibility to take reasonable steps to prevent you from coming to harm
- The other person or party failed to uphold the duty of care, whether by acting negligently, engaging in unlawful conduct, or otherwise putting you at risk
- The other person or party’s failure to uphold the duty of care was the proximate cause of your injuries and related damages
To bring a Personal Injury claim, you will also need to demonstrate that you actually suffered injuries and/or damages; you cannot file a claim if you were not harmed.
Depending on the type of case you have, as well as the specifics of your case, proving that another person or party is liable for your injuries and/or damages can be very complex. Often, the insurance company will try to argue that you were at fault for the accident and, therefore, you are only entitled to partial compensation—or not entitled to compensation at all.
