Fighting For Your Interests In Negligence Actions
The law recognizes that people injured by others’ negligent actions have a right to recover financially from the negligent parties. These claims can come up in a wide variety of situations. If you have suffered an injury due to someone else’s actions or you need to defend yourself against accusations of negligence, you need an attorney who understands the legal concepts surrounding negligence claims.
At The Kruckemeyer Law Firm, our team has achieved positive results in personal injury and negligence cases ranging from medical malpractice to traffic accidents. As a seasoned litigator with more than 38 years of experience, our lead attorney, Robert J. Kruckemeyer, has obtained millions of dollars for victims of negligence and has saved clients millions of dollars in claims, settlements and verdicts.
What Is A Negligence Claim?
To prevail on a common law negligence claim, a plaintiff must be able to prove three elements:
- A legal duty owed by one person to another
- A breach of that duty
- Damage proximately caused by the breach
For example, a driver has a legal duty to drive responsibly and follow traffic laws. If a driver runs a stop sign and crashes into you, they have breached their duty. If that crash causes you injuries, then you can link your injuries to the driver’s negligence.
Not all examples are this simple, however. In some cases, we must investigate who had a legal duty of care and whether their actions caused the injury at issue. Issues of liability and negligence can become quite complicated, but we have the knowledge and resources to sort through them.
