Proving Negligence

There are two types of damages that are commonly awarded in personal injury cases.  These include “compensatory” damages or compensation for the losses that are directly attributed to your accident and injuries.  The intention of compensatory damages is to make the injury victim (plaintiff) a whole person financially.  Therefore, a dollar figure is established for each consequence of your accident and how the injuries you sustained have negatively impacted your quality of life.  This category of damages includes:

Legal dictionaries define “negligence” as “A failure to behave with the level of care that someone of ordinary prudence would have exercised under the same circumstances.”  It goes on to say “The behavior usually consists of actions, but can also consist of omissions when there is some duty to act (e.g., a duty to help victims of one's previous conduct).”  In personal injury law, we refer to the term “Duty of Care” to emphasize a person’s obligation to avoid harming other individuals. In personal injury claims and lawsuits, you must establish that the defendant had a duty of care in the circumstances surrounding the accident.  This is the first step towards proving negligence.  Although it’s easy to assume that the other party is responsible for your injuries, it’s not always that simple.  Compensation for your injuries and financial losses as well as your pain and suffering is based on who was more careless.

If one party was more careless than the other, that party is responsible and must pay for damages by compensating the injured party.  The determination of liability in personal injury cases is based on the following questions:

  What type of accident was the injury victim involved in and where were they injured?
  Was the victim supposed to be there?
  Was the victim careless in any way?
  Was the victim injured at work?
  Was the victim injured by a defective product?
  Was the victim injured on a poorly maintained property?
