Types of Matthews Personal Injury Claims


Personal injury claims can arise from a variety of different accidents.

The Burden of Proof in a Personal Injury Claim


In personal injury cases, the accident victim has the legal burden of proof and must satisfy all elements of a claim. To be successful in a personal injury claim, the accident victim must show that another person or entity behaved unreasonably under the circumstances and that, as a result, the accident occurred. The accident victim must also demonstrate that as a result of the accident, he or she suffered specific injuries and damages, such as a broken bone, head injury, or soft tissue injury.


In some instances, expert testimony – such as from an accident reconstructionist – is necessary to prove that someone else caused the accident. At other times, a medical expert might be necessary to causally connect a particular injury to the accident. A Matthews personal injury attorney will be able to retain the necessary experts to help you prove all of the legal elements of your case.
