Proving Liability in a Personal Injury Claim
To prove that a third party is responsible for the accident, the evidence must show that:
- The property owner had a responsibility to ensure your safety and failed to do so.
- The property owner knew of the potential danger that could lead to an accident and did nothing.
- The failure to fix the issue caused the accident that led to your injuries.
- You suffered financial losses because of your injuries.
It is not always simple to prove the liability of a third party, especially if they attempt to correct the issue before it can be investigated or conceal evidence. A Bradenton personal injury lawyer can take legal action to gain this evidence to support your claim if this is the case.
