How to identify negligent parties and hold them accountable for a third-party personal injury liability claim?

What is third party liability?

Suppose you’ve been hurt on someone’s property, and the occurred injury was due to something present on the property, belonging to the owner or one of their employees. What would you do? If you want to file a lawsuit, how exactly would you do it and who would you deem liable for your injury?

This entire process will require an in-depth investigation through any third party lawyers you may hire for this case. Then, the liable party will have their insurance provider conduct another investigation to confirm. That’s when you can file your lawsuit. Here is how you can identify the liable party and hold them accountable for the damage caused to you due to their negligence.

Proving negligence and liability

In order for you to successfully hold a party liable for an injury that has been caused to you, you must remember four things. These are the elements on the basis of which it will be decided whether or not they were actually negligent.

       External influence: The defense could claim that there were other parties involved, due to which your accident occurred.
       They were legally bound by law to perform a certain task that they did not, which lead to your accident and injury.
       The liable party was directly the reason for your injury. It was caused due to something they did.
       You must show that actual loss occurred to you from this injury.

Know how to structure your case

You must provide actual proof that the other party is, in fact, liable for the injury caused to you. A strong case could make it so that the insurance provider sees that the insured was in the wrong, which would mean that you could avoid the court process entirely. Here is what you need to remember when gathering evidence at the scene of the injury:

       You must gather photographic evidence at the scene of the accident.
       Gathering personal information on the other party will not only strengthen your case, it will also give you leverage to defend yourself in the case of a trial.
       Any reports filed and written on the incident should be brought under consideration. This will increase authenticity and act as further evidence of the occurrence of the accident.
       Getting a video at the scene of the accident could prove to be quite helpful in the case of a hearing. Since photographic evidence is easier to manipulate, this medium may be considered better for use as evidence.
       Getting witnesses is always a good idea when filing a law suit. If there were any witnesses present at the time of the accident, make sure to get their contact information and call them in court when needed.

The attorney you will hire for your case will be responsible for taking this process further.
