What is considered a Personal Injury Case?

A personal injury case can be a negligence case considered a failure to take proper care when conducting an act. Such as running a red light when operating a motor vehicle resulting in an accident with another person, which causes harm or injury.

Other types of negligence cases involve any other forms of negligence, such as transportation accidents, boating accidents, and pedestrian accidents, to name a few.

How do you prove negligence?

Typically, negligence claims must prove four things in court:

  1. Duty – The defendant owed the plaintiff a legal duty to act reasonably to avoid harm or injury.
  2. Breach (of Duty) – The defendant breached that duty by failing to act reasonably or without proper care.
  3. Causation – The defendants’ actions caused injury or harm to the plaintiff.
  4. Damages and/or harm – The plaintiff was harmed or injured as a result of negligence on the defendants’ behalf.
