Injuries resulting from an accident can put everything you have worked for at risk. Your job, your health, and your family are all affected in many ways, and you need help in getting the justice and the compensation you deserve. Wisconsin personal injury lawyers at Bye, Goff & Rohde have over 40 years of experience in the La Crosse area helping people just like you protect their interests after an accident.
Personal injury cases are determined by the element of negligence, which is legally defined as the failure to exhibit the duty of care applicable to the scenario in question. Drivers, business owners, contractors, bicyclists, and even pedestrians all have a certain duty of care toward those around them that they must follow to avoid negligence.
If this duty of care is violated, this is referred to as breach of care, which is the foundational action that supports all personal injury claims. If a breach of care is in fact established, the injured party must also prove causation, or the fact that his or her injuries were a result of the defendant’s negligence. Additionally, damages, or actual tangible loss, must be present to seek compensation.
Wisconsin law states that contributory negligence may apply if the injured party is more at fault for the accident than the defendant. This means that an injured party must have a solid account of the events in question and a strong legal team to establish the facts and follow the relevant statutes for filing a claim. The attention to detail required to successfully navigate a personal injury claim calls for the most experienced and dedicated legal professionals available. The attorneys at Bye, Goff & Rohde are those professionals, and they are here to help.
