When an individual gets injured in an accident as a result of a negligent act, it falls on the negligent party’s insurance provider to determine to what extent they will cover the costs of any medical or injury related expenses. From the time the insurance company is notified of a claim, they are building their case to pay you as little as possible. Every statement will be used to accomplish their goals.

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.
