What is liability in a Personal Injury case?

November 21, 2018

Liability is the determination of fault in your Personal Injury case.

Any successful Personal Injury claim is going to contain two crucial parts: liability and damages. Is the other person responsible for what happened? That’s known as liability.

Can you prove liability?

Just because you got hurt does not necessarily mean that you have a Personal Injury claim. In the video above, Attorney Skolnick reiterates that you need to be hurt because someone else did something they shouldn’t have done. When we ask, “Can you prove liability?" this simply means, “can you prove that the other person was at fault?” To answer this, we have to determine if the other party did something that they shouldn’t have done, and that’s what caused your injuries. If so, we would say that they are liable for your injuries.
