The core of most personal injury cases is an injury that occurred at the fault of another person as a result of negligent behavior. The primary factor in determining if an injury warrants a personal injury case is whether or not the injury resulted from negligence on the behalf of an individual, company, or other entity. Tort law has established “duty of care,” which refers to the responsibility an individual may have to ensure the safety of others.
For instance, when you get your driver's license and are operating a motor vehicle, you have a duty of care to the other motorists on the road. That means you have a responsibility to follow the law and procedures of operating a motor vehicle. If that duty of care is breached by another person through negligence or reckless disregard and you are injured, you may be entitled to compensation. Personal injury cases must prove that there was a duty of care owed to you and that it was breached due to negligence. Our attorneys at Kempton & Russell are experienced in personal injury cases and are here to fight for your rights.
Due to the complexities of personal injuries, the State of Missouri has statutes of limitations set for the varying accident types. In general, victims of personal injuries have up to 5 years from the time the injury was discovered to file their claim. Identifying the date the injury occured can be simple following an auto accident but cases of medical malpractice may be harder to assess and understand. Your attorney will be able to assist you in meeting important deadlines, collecting important evidence, and securing helpful documentation in filing your claim.
Personalized advocacy is paramount in any personal injury case, particularly in medical malpractice claims. While we appreciate the varied specialties in medicine and the hard work done by medical professionals, negligent acts occur, especially during surgery. Cases that involve hospital negligence or brain injuries suffered at birth create significant challenges in both preparation and litigation. Our job is to respond to those potential obstacles with a fact-based approach, teaming up with experts in various medical specialties to verify that a medical malpractice claim is valid.
