How the Egg Shell Skull Rule Can Impact Your Accident Case
There is a rule in personal injury claims that the defendant takes their victim as they find them. It does not matter what condition the plaintiff was in before the accident. The defendant is liable to pay for the damages that they have caused to the specific and unique plaintiff.
This principle is personified by the term “eggshell skull rule.” While the phrase sounds somewhat extreme, it stands for the fact that a jury will hold the defendant liable for physical injuries, even if the plaintiff has an eggshell skull that could be cracked by anything.
