Personal Injury Litigation

Keywords: Personal Injury, Accident Lawyer, Car Accident Lawyer

At the heart of most personal injury lawsuits lies the theory of negligence. Proving negligence requires the establishment of four key factors. First, that the defendant had a duty of care towards the injured party. Second, that there was a breech in that duty of care. Third, that the breech was the direct cause of the injuries and finally, that there were actual losses suffered. For example, if a pedestrian crossing the road within a crosswalk is struck and killed by a driver running a red light, the driver can be found liable on the grounds that he or she was negligent, or rather, that he or she failed to exercise a degree of caution which a reasonable person would exercise under the same circumstances (i.e. stopping at the red light.)
