Grounds for Personal Injury Claims

Personal Injury Attorney in Atlanta

If you intend on filing a claim for damages following an accident, it is important for you to know that you must have grounds to do so.  In this case, grounds are defined as valid reasons or foundations for engaging in some action.  In the matter of personal injury claims, one must be able to prove that the actions or conduct of another or others resulted in the accident occurring in the first place.  Such actions/conduct can include:

  • Negligence - This involves an individual or group failing to act with proper caution or care in certain circumstances.
  • Intentional conduct - This involves a person or group acting to intentionally harm another, in which case they can be held liable for any damages the victim might sustain
  • Strict liability - This involves a person or group being responsible for the injuries of another even if no malicious intent or negligence was involved.  A common example is the owner of a dog that attacks and injures someone.
