Obligation of Personal Injury Plaintiff to Reduce Damages
When a person is injured through the negligence of someone else, the injured person has an obligation to take reasonable steps to minimize the effects and loss related to his or her injuries. This obligation includes seeking other employment and/or retraining if the person’s usual line of work is no longer feasible. If you are a defendant in a lawsuit contact an experienced personal injury defense attorney. He can help reduce the amount of damages an injured person may be able to recover by developing showing that an injured plaintiff has failed to take reasonable steps to reduce his or her loss following an injury. The amount that can be saved by a proper handling of a case can be substantial.
