How Do I know If I Have A Case?
For most all injury cases, liability must be established. That means the person that caused your injury must have owed you a duty and their breach of that duty caused you damage. This legal concept is often used by corporations or insurance companies to scare people into thinking they do not have a claim. DO NOT BE FOOLED. The duty standard used by North Dakota courts applies to almost every one – including businesses. We all have a duty to act reasonably and if we fail to do so, we are liable for the injuries we cause.
Liability can be established by someone’s negligent, reckless, or intentional behavior.
Do not be bullied or pressured by the insurances companies into accepting a lower settlement than you deserve or even worse – no settlement at all. Call the North Dakota Oilfield Injury Lawyers today to schedule your free consultation.
What Sort Of Things Can I Be Compensated For If I Have Been Injured?
There are several forms of damages that are broken into two categories: General Damages and Special Damages. General Damages are things that are more difficult to put an exact number on, like how painful your injury was. Special Damages are those that have an exact dollar amount, such as the exact cost of your medical expenses. Here is a breakdown of the damages you may be entitled to if you have been injured by the wrongdoing of another.
- Pain and Suffering
- Mental Anguish
- Loss of Reputation
- Emotional Distress
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Vehicle Repair
- Property Damage
- Lost or Stolen Items
Am I Able To File A Civil Lawsuit Other Than Workers Comp If I Was Injured On The Job?
Many times yes. Do not be pressured into thinking that workers compensation is your only avenue to recoup compensation for an injury or accident that took place at work. In many cases there may be a liable third party. This means that just because your injury happened while on the job – there may be another person or company liable to pay for damages not covered by workers compensation, like:
- Pain and Suffering
- Emotional Trauma
- Mental Anguish
- Punitive Damages
The personal injury attorneys at Sand Law, PLLC will guide you through your case step-by-step and fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
