Do I Have a Case?
Generally, victims of catastrophic injuries who are seeking compensation must prove their injury was caused by another’s negligence. This involves four things:
- Duty of care was owed – This means another party owed you a legal obligation to act with reasonable care to avoid injuring you or others.
- Duty of care was breached - The duty of care was breached by the defendant in the case. Usually the duty of care is breached by the actions of the at-fault party, but sometimes the at-fault party failed to act, and that was the breach of care.
- Link between breached duty and injury – This means the breach was the cause of your injuries.
- Proof of damages – You must provide proof that the damages you suffered were a direct result of the injury and actions of the liable party.
You may be unsure if you have a case, and that is why you should contact our firm for a free consultation with a Tempe catastrophic injury lawyer.
What Might My Case be Worth?
This is an important question, particularly as bills for medical treatment pile up and victims miss time from work.

- Costs of hiring a caretaker
