At the Thistle Law Firm, we practice personal injury litigation and have represented plaintiffs for many types of claims that have resulted in bodily harm, financial loss, and death. We have a compassionate understanding for the injured and their families that have to deal with the physical and emotional pain in the aftermath as well as the depth of medical care that may be involved. We are sensitive to our clients’ needs and we will work exhaustively to conduct investigations, call in experts and provide the strongest case and recoveries possible.
Personal injury claims can be based on the negligence or intentional acts of another person or entity. When bringing a claim based on the negligence of another, it must be shown that: (1) the party who harmed you owed you a duty or obligation; (2) that they breached this duty; (3) that this breach caused you harm; (4) actual damages. Unlike negligence claims, claims based on the intentional acts of another are those where the harming person or entity has the express intent to cause injury. In addition to claims based on the negligence and intentional acts of another, there are some instances where another is held strictly liable for their conduct which causes harm. We welcome you to view the section of our website describing products liability claims to see such instances where strict liability applies.
