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.
Most car accidents are caused by reckless or negligent drivers. Reckless drivers place everyone on the road in danger by weaving in and out of traffic, speeding or causing terrible injuries or fatalities in a drunk driving accident. When a driver speeds or drives recklessly, all those sharing the streets or highways are put in serious danger. Car accidents can also be the result of a defective safety system or other component, or a serious design flaw or manufacturing defect in your vehicle. In those cases, the injured victim can seek compensation from the car manufacturer or other liable party. In car accident cases, the attorney has the job of determining who should be held accountable for the accident and to ensure that the liable individual compensates their client fully.
