Portland, Oregon - A media representative for the Law Offices of Jon Friedman, a Portland personal injury lawyer, today announced the publication of an article entitled, “Factors that Determine Case Viability.” The article was published on the firm’s website in an effort to help accident victims learn how to determine whether or not they have a case which can be filed in a court of law.Attorney Jon Friedman said, “We published that article because we found out that a lot of people will not file a case even though they have a good chance of winning in court.” The article discusses the three most important elements of a personal injury law suit which are: negligence, causation and damages.
Consumers who wish to read the article in its entirety are encouraged to visit the firm’s website at: http://www.jonathanmfriedman.com/. The first element in a personal injury case is negligence. It simply means the person who caused the accident “acted in a manner no reasonable person would have acted.”The second element is causation and it is the most important element of a personal injury case. It means the accident victim must prove in court the other person’s negligence caused their injuries. Mr. Friedman said, “Only after you have proven negligence AND causation does a jury consider your damages.”
After a victim’s attorney proves negligence and causation, the jury will determine the last element of a case which is ‘damages’. Damages consist of past, present and future medical bills and lost wages. Under Oregon law this element is called economic damages. Oregon law also allows a jury to consider non-economic damages which include past, present and future pain and suffering and interference with a victim’s ability to lead a normal life.
