If you have been hurt because of someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to seek compensation through a personal injury claim. This is not a simple process. There are three keys to a successful personal injury case: identifying the party responsible for the injury, demonstrating negligence and accurately calculating the full extent of the victim's loss.
