What do I need to prove before I can file a personal injury lawsuit?

In all personal injury lawsuits, the burden of proof falls on the plaintiff. This means that you must prove by a preponderance of evidence that your injuries were a direct result of the defendant's negligent actions. If you can prove the extent of the injuries suffered, you can be awarded compensation for your losses. In most cases, a qualified personal injury attorney will appoint medical professionals as well as other expert witnesses to testify on your behalf.
