PERSONAL INJURY / WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIMS

 

Legally, we define Personal Injury as;

"A personal injury to any private individual occurs when their mind, emotions, or rights are infringed on as the result of a wrongful act, negligence, carelessness, or breach of a duty on behalf of another person or body."

A great variety of events result in personal injury claims. They may include trespass to the property (either physical or intellectual), vehicle accidents, truck accidents, premises liability, inadequate security claims, medical malpractice, defamation (either slander or libel), which causes damages to the reputation or business of any person or corporate body. Dog bites are also included in injury claims and result in many consequential damages. We can say from the above discussion that personal injuries arise from the infringement of the civil rights and overall harm to any entity.

If any person, body, or entity claims that they are harmed or their rights are infringed on by any other body, they need to prove such action or inaction for the other party to be liable (i.e., either it is caused by negligence, recklessness, carelessness, or a malicious intention.)

Personal injury victims must be able to prove the conduct or action of the other body and the elements discussed above to prevail in the case.

 

There are four elements that make the proof of a personal injury case;

  • Duty of the Defendant

  • Action / Inaction of the Defendant 

  • Injury to the Plaintiff

  • Causation of Injury

A Forensic Accountant is often asked to quantify the economic losses resulting from a motor vehicle accident. A Forensic Accountant needs to be familiar with the legislation in place which pertains to motor vehicle accidents. Cases of medical malpractice and wrongful dismissal often involve similar issues in calculating the resulting economic damages.
