Have You Suffered a Personal Injury? Learn How To Get Compensated
Personal injury, also known as tort law, is a legal term that describes a circumstance where a person suffers bodily injury as a result of another party’s actions or activities. By law, when you suffer a personal injury, meaning you are not responsible or at-fault for the incident in which you were hurt, you have the right to seek compensation from the party that has caused you harm.
At the Moore Law Firm, it is our job to represent your best interest and make sure the at-fault party is held accountable for their actions. If you are looking for an experienced and versatile personal injury lawyer, get in touch now for a case consultation!

Proving Liability: The Key to Winning Your Personal Injury Case
In most cases, accidents happen because at least one party was acting carelessly. These can be anything from minor behaviors that result in minor damage or gross negligence that cause extensive injuries to the victim.
No matter the extent of injuries or the type of action you have to take to get compensated (insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit), one key aspect you need to focus on is proving liability.
And to prove legal liability, you essentially need to show that the defendant:
- Had a duty to be careful towards the injured victim.
- Is responsible for said injuries, either because of their actions or lack thereof.
- Is responsible for covering the victim’s damages.
Your own actions will come into question as well. If you are also at-fault, albeit to a lesser degree, it’s likely for your compensation to be lowered based on your personal fault degree.
You will need to provide the court or insurance company evidence that essentially supports your claim. For example, if you get hurt because a dog bit you, then you may seek compensation for these injuries from the dog owner. But to receive it, you have to provide evidence:
- Of who is responsible to ensure their dog behaves. In some cases, it may not be the owner, but a dog walker or other party.
- That their actions resulted in your injuries (such as not keeping the dog on a leash.
- That they are also responsible for covering your medical bills resulting from the injuries.
Example: Dog Bites
Keeping the previous example, if the dog bites you out of the blue in a public place, then you are not at-fault for the incident. The dog owner or walker should have shown higher caution to keep their dog on a leash.
But, if you walk up to the dog, start to pet it, and the dog bites you, it can be argued that you are at least partially responsible for the injury. Dogs are territorial and protective by nature, so if a stranger walks up to them they may see it as a threat.

What Types of Personal Injury Cases Are There?
A personal injury lawsuit or claim can be extremely varied. When a person gets injured because of another party’s actions, the victim has the right to seek personal injury damages.
Common cases of personal injury suits include:
A burn injury has the potential to leave a lasting impact – physically, psychologically, and financially. These injuries can be caused by any factors such as extreme heat, chemicals, gases, electricity, or even radiation. Possibly the most painful type of injury a person can endure, a burn injury, can become life threatening if not immediately and properly cared for.
Commercial Truck Accidents
Commercial trucks are heavy, maneuver poorly and cause mayhem and destruction when they’re involved in a collision. Because commercial truck drivers and the transportation companies that employ them are held to different legal and safety standards, vehicle accidents that involve big trucks require a unique legal approach and an in-depth understanding of Commercial Truck Accident Law.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Property owners must reasonably maintain their properties in a way that prevents avoidable dangers to visitors. If, for example, a property owner fails to reasonably clean up slippery messes, repair broken staircases or provide adequate lighting, he or she could be liable for the injuries that result.
Whether they are vehicles, pharmaceutical drugs, toys, a food product –or some other kind of manufactured good — the makers, designers and distributors of these products have a legal responsibility to design and manufacture products that are free of dangerous defects, and to warn consumers of any known risks associated with their products. As a result of this legal duty, product makers and sellers may be financially liable for the injuries and deaths their products cause.
It’s important to work with an experienced lawyer who knows about the type of personal injuries you are dealing with. The process of getting compensated for a car accident injury can be slightly different from medical negligence claims or lawsuits, as you are dealing with completely different sets of laws.
