Sudden injuries can completely derail the course of your life. An injury can affect your ability to live your life. Instead of going out with your friends, you may need to visit the doctor. You may be in intense pain with no relief in sight. If your injury affected your ability to work, your bills may be mounting.
If somebody else caused your injury, they should be responsible for compensating you for your losses, which is where a motivated attorney comes in. A Maine personal injury lawyer at Mann Law could meet with you to discuss your potential legal claim.
The basis for a personal injury claim occurs when one person’s carelessness, intentional misconduct, recklessness, or negligence conduct causes another person to suffer a serious injury. If the claimant prevails, a local court would require the defendant to pay the claimant damages as compensation.
To be successful, an injured claimant would need to demonstrate that they suffered an injury due to someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or willful misconduct.
To prevent people from filing frivolous lawsuits, Maine courts require claimants to demonstrate that the injury caused them to sustain specific harm or losses. A proactive attorney at Mann Law in Maine could help you gather and secure all the necessary evidence to support your personal injury claim.
A skilled lawyer could also help a claimant evaluate all the losses they suffered to pursue a damages award that fully and fairly compensates them and represents an accurate value of everything that the defendant’s wrongful actions caused them to lose.
In Maine, claimants can pursue recovery of both their tangible and intangible losses. In most personal injury lawsuits, claimants seek to recover economic damages, such as:
Maine courts also allow claimants to recover non-economic damages to represent their intangible losses. Often, claimants seek damages for their mental anguish, emotional pain and suffering, and loss of companionship. Fortunately, except in wrongful death claims, state courts do not cap the amount of compensation in personal injury suits.
Experienced Maine attorneys at Mann Law could explain how damage limitations might apply to your personal injury claim.
However, Maine courts operate with a modified comparative fault statute, which bars recovery if a claimant was more than 50 percent responsible for the accident or incident that led to their own injury. If the claimant bears less than 50 percent of the blame for the accident, the claimant could still pursue a claim, but the court would reduce their recoverable damages in proportion to their degree of responsibility for the accident.
