Establish fault in a Dobbs Ferry injury lawsuit
Regardless of the nature of your injury, our team of skilled injury lawyers is focused on holding the person who injured you accountable. We will investigate until we have identified the responsible parties.
To recover damages on your behalf, a personal injury attorney must establish four elements to prove the defendant was negligent:
- The defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care
- The defendant breached their duty
- The defendant caused the plaintiff’s injuries
- The plaintiff’s injuries resulted in real damages
The duty owed to a plaintiff can vary depending on the facts of your case. For example, the duty of a vehicle operator to drive safely is rarely at issue. The duty of a property owner to a trespasser is more likely to be contested, however. If your legal counsel demonstrates all of the elements of negligence, you could recover the monetary damages you deserve.
Damages in a personal injury lawsuit
Damages in a personal injury lawsuit can vary a great deal. While damages in a slip and fall accident might primarily involve medical costs, damages from a vehicle crash can cover anything from hospital bills to personal property damage. Some common examples of damages recovered in a personal injury suit include:
- Medical bills
- Future medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Diminished future earning capacity
- Permanent disability
- Property damage repair bills
No fee unless we win your case
At Douglas & London, we believe the inability to pay up-front legal fees should never prevent you from recovering compensation for your injuries. That is why we will never charge you a fee unless we are successful in your case.
In each case, we operate under a contingency agreement. Should we obtain compensation in your case, we collect a percentage of that recovery as our fee. If we are unsuccessful, you won’t owe us a dime. Our contingency fees will never go up because you deserve transparency when it comes to your injury claim.
