Personal Injury Accidents
What defines personal injury case?
“Personal injury” is a legal term that defines cases in which a person is harmed by another person or business.
Personal injury cases are generally based on claims of negligence.
Negligence is defined as a failure to use reasonable care, resulting in damage or injury to another.
What are the 4 elements of negligence?
Negligence claims must prove four things in court:
Duty, [Example: people have a duty to drive their vehicles in a reasonably manner.]
Breach, [Example: another driver rear-ended your vehicle.]
Causation, [Example: "But For" another driver rear-ending your vehicle, you were injured.] and
Damages/harm. [Example: you were injured because another driver rear-ended your vehicle and you required medical attention.]
When someone acts in a careless way and causes an injury to another person or property, under the legal principle of "negligence" the negligent or careless person will be legally liable for any resulting harm.
