Negligence is one of the most important aspects of a personal injury case. In fact, it is what an entire claim is based on. Negligence is what causes the accident you were injured in in the first place. A person can be is negligent when he fails to act in a way that a reasonably careful person would act in the same situation. In the legal field, proving negligence has four aspects. First, the individual accused of negligence must have owed the injured individual a duty of care. Second, they must have violated that duty. Third, that breach directly caused the injury. Fourth and finally, that the damage from the injury is provable. If all four elements are met, an individual may be accused of negligence.
