- Breach of duty: The at-fault party behaved negligently and put you at risk.
- Causation: The at-fault party’s negligence led to the accident that caused your injuries, making that party liable for your damages.
- Damages: You suffered economic, physical, and emotional damages.
To support your case, we obtain supporting documentation that may include:
- Accident scene photos and videos
- Accident report
- Witness statements
We also solicit the opinions of experts that can support our findings of fault and liability.
