As important as it is in a Cape Cod personal injury lawsuit to be able to prove that the defendant’s negligence was the proximate cause of the plaintiff’s injuries, this is only one of several steps in pursuing fair compensation. Additionally, it is important that the plaintiff understand, to the fullest extent possible under the law, the insurance coverage that may be available to the various parties to the lawsuit.
Sometimes, insurance coverage issues become part of the plaintiff’s suit. They may, however, be the source of a separately filed case.
Such was the case in a recent matter arising from an accident at a trade show. Fortunately for the injured individual, the court found that liability coverage was available for the injured man’s accident.
