Do I have a case?

Given the attention that is paid to concern over frivolous lawsuits, it might seem that injury victims feel justified in pursuing legal action regardless of the circumstances surrounding their injury. However, attempting to bring a baseless case can prevent you from obtaining financial compensation and can also lead to the imposition of penalties against you. Although there is no way to guarantee the outcome of a case, there are some criteria that must be met in order for a case to have legitimate legal grounds.

In order to pursue a personal injury case, you must prove the defendant owed a duty of care and acted in a way to breach that duty. You must have also suffered an injury because of the breach of duty.
