Who Is at Fault for My Personal Injury?
When you’re hurt in an accident, you need to know who’s responsible for your injuries before you file a lawsuit. But that’s often easier said than done. If you’re struggling to get compensated because you’re not sure who is at fault for your personal injury, get help from the lawyers at Anderson & Anderson. We want to help you hold the at-fault party accountable for their actions.
The Person Who Injured You
Sometimes, finding the at-fault party isn’t so tough. It may have been the person who directly injured you. Maybe they were a distracted driver who hit you in their car. Maybe they were trying to harm you. In these cases, you may be able to sue that person with a Tampa personal injury lawyer’s help, getting the compensation you’re due for the distracted driver’s actions.
Employers and Property Owners
But the party that caused the injuries isn’t always responsible for their actions directly. They may have been acting within the limits of their job, for example. If you were injured by a delivery person, or if an employee failed to warn you about a wet floor, you may need to sue the person responsible for the people or location. Generally, employers are responsible for who they hire, and property owners are at fault for any accidents that happen on their property.
This also applies to dog attacks. If you were bitten by someone’s pet, the animal’s owner is responsible for their pet’s actions.
You may not have been injured so directly, though. You may have been injured by a manufacturer’s actions. They may have failed to test a product and make sure it was safe for general use, as one example. If they failed to ensure their product was safe, they could be held accountable for your suffering.
