If you’re wondering how to sue a large corporation for personal injury–such as your employer or an organization that you do business with–make sure that you start with a free, private case evaluation from an experienced, capable attorney.
For most large corporations, personal injury claims are simply a cost of doing business–especially when they invite customers, visitors, or employers on-site.
Here’s how to sue a large corporation for personal injury.
The elements of a personal injury lawsuit
There are three basic elements of a personal injury lawsuit and negligence claim against a large corporation on the business’s property:
- a duty of care owed by the corporation to the customer,
- a breach of that duty of care, and
- the various levels of harm caused by that breach.
A plaintiff is required to prove each of these elements using meaningful evidence in order to prevail in a court of law.
Proving duty of care owed by the corporation to the customer and breach of that care
Any large corporation is required to meet a duty of reasonable care that ensures the safety of its employees, visitors, customers, etc.
Some ways to prove a breach of duty of care include:
- Failure to make repairs to structures that may cause harm
- Failure to warn visitors of potentially hazardous conditions, such as wet floors
- Failure to regularly inspect the facility for potential hazards
When that duty of reasonable care is not met and safety is compromised, that’s the beginning of successful personal injury litigation.
Proving the various levels of harm caused by that breach
A personal injury lawsuit seeks compensation above and beyond simple medical bills for care and recovery.
Various levels of harm may include:
- cost of medical bills
- pain and suffering
- loss of earning capacity, and
- loss of the ability to enjoy life post-injury.
A qualified personal injury attorney can help you to decide which of these levels of harm apply to your situation in putting together your case.
