Personal Injury Claims in Nixon
Personal injury claims are common, and they are based on the premise that someone else’s negligent or reckless actions caused injury to a person. If those actions cause damage to the person, then the person can bring a lawsuit asking for monetary compensation for the damages suffered.
For negligence to be established, the following must be present:
- A duty of care must be present
- That duty of care must have been breached by someone who owed the duty to someone else
- That breach must directly cause injuries
- Actual damages must have resulted from the breach
If the aforementioned elements are shown, the individual bringing a personal injury suit most likely has a good case and can claim damages in front of a jury or during a settlement negotiation.
Personal injury encompasses many different accidents. As long as negligence or reckless behavior is involved, a personal injury lawsuit can probably be brought. One of the most common personal injury accidents in Nixon is one involving a boating or watercraft accident due to the prevalence of fishing and other water sports on Pyramid Lake.
If you have been in an accident and can prove that negligent or reckless conduct was involved, you may be entitled to damages. However, each personal injury claim is fact-specific, so it is best to consult an attorney experienced in handling personal injury cases to ensure that you are able to sue.
