Personal Injury Attorney FAQ
What Is Negligence & Why Does It Matter in Personal Injury Cases?
Negligence is the basis for all personal injury cases. It proves that there was a failure to use reasonable care on the part of the other party, leading to your injuries. Proving negligence requires:
- Establishing an obligation to keep you safe from the person who caused you injury; did they meet their reasonable responsibility to make sure you were out of harm’s way?
- Showing how the person or party failed to meet that obligation; what caused the injury that they should have addressed?
- Presenting evidence and proof of your injury and damages.
- Proving how the person or party’s failure to meet that obligation caused your injury or loss.
How Do You Define ‘Damages’?
In personal injury cases, damages refer to the costs of your injury, including both direct and non-direct financial expenses and awards.
