Lehigh Acres Personal Injury Lawyer
When an individual, company, municipality, or other party’s negligent actions cause an injury, the victim has a right to seek compensation through the civil courts. This enables the victim (plaintiff) to pay for their medical bills, property damage, pain and suffering, and other damages incurred during the accident. A large personal injury claim settlement, or lawsuit verdict, can also go a long way in restoring justice. While it may be tempting to simply take an offer from the other party before getting an attorney involved, a skilled Lehigh Acres personal injury lawyer can significantly increase the amount you take home. Here at Cardinal Law, P.A., we work closely with our clients every step of the way, from establishing fault to litigation in the courtroom, in order to give our clients the greatest chance at success.

How Does a Personal Injury Claim Work?
There are four key elements in any personal injury claim, whether the plaintiff was injured in a dog attack, motorcycle collision, bus accident, or any other injury scenario.
- Establish that the defendant had a duty of care to the plaintiff. Duties of care exist in virtually all aspects of society. A driver owes a duty of care to a pedestrian, for example, while a manufacturer owes a duty of care to a consumer.
- Prove that the defendant breached their duty of care.
- Prove that the breach caused the plaintiff’s injuries
- Establish the plaintiff’s damages.
To put things more simply, your attorney must be able to prove fault, and thereby establish liability. Proving fault in a traffic collision might mean working with police and crash scene forensics. Proving fault in a nursing home abuse claim might require medical experts and witness testimony. An attorney with a good network of expert witnesses and extensive knowledge in the field of personal injury law should be able to establish fault if the other party truly did breach their duty of care.
