If you were injured in an accident that was not your fault, you might have a personal injury case. Although it can be challenging to know for sure if you have a case, there are some signs that can help you determine if you should file a claim.

When You Might Have a Valid Personal Injury Claim

One of the most obvious signs that you may have a personal injury case is if you were hurt because of someone else’s negligence. If you were not doing anything wrong, but you were hurt in a vehicle crash, slip and fall, or dog attack anyway, then it is likely that another party was negligent and, therefore, may be responsible for your injuries in some way. The key to a successful claim or lawsuit will be proving the other party's negligence.

Another sign that you may have a personal injury claim is if you required hospitalization after the accident and are unable to work due to your injuries. If your injuries were minor and did not require expensive medical treatment and time off work, you probably don't have a claim. However, serious injuries causing long-term or permanent disability that can be connected directly to the accident should be compensated by the negligent party.

[Video Transcript] How Do I Know If I Have a Personal Injury Claim

Hello I'm attorney Nick Clevenger of Peterson and Associates, based right here in Kansas City, Missouri. We often get asked an important question, how do I know if I have a personal injury claim? Recognizing if you have a claim can be challenging, but there are a couple of signs to look for first if you were injured due to someone else's negligence or fault.

Whether it be in a car accident, a slip and fall, or a dog attack, you likely have a personal injury claim. The key to that claim is proving the other party's negligence. The next step is to determine your injuries or damages. If your injuries were significant enough to need hospitalization or they prevented you from working that could be a sign of a valid claim.  Severe injuries that cause long-term or permanent disability and can be traced back to the accident likely indicate a viable claim and you may have a right to be compensated by the negligent party. If you've been injured and you're wondering whether you might have a claim, the very best way to find out is to contact us at Peterson Associates as soon as possible.
