With a population of 85,792 in the city proper and another 367,770 in the greater metro, Victoria relies on principles of basic common decency, due diligence, a sense of duty, and widely accepted standards of care to maintain order. When individuals act outside these accepted norms in ways that can be considered “negligent” or “reckless,” and their actions cause harm to another person, they may be held liable in civil court.

Do You Have A Personal Injury Case?
Personal injury cases are marked by physical and psychological harm to an individual, rather than property damage. The injuries tend to be severe and lasting – a disfiguring burn, a broken bone, a perforated organ, joint injury, nerve damage, or soft tissue tears affecting movement. Treatment may include surgery, weeks or months of physical therapy rehabilitation, and extended time off work.
Sometimes it’s obvious another person was at fault for the accident, such as in the case of a motor vehicle collision where someone plows into you while you were sitting at a red light. Other times, you may require assistance from the investigative arm of a personal injury law firm to find out if the other party has a track record of safety violations or malfeasance. Even if you played some small part in causing the accident – for instance, if you were speeding prior to a car crash or weren’t watching where you were walking when you tripped on the cracked sidewalk – you may still be able to recover a reduced level of compensation.
