What is a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
A personal injury lawsuit is a civil claim brought by the injured victim of an accident, such as a car crash or slip and fall, against the person or party responsible for causing the accident. The purpose of a personal injury claim is to make a victim whole again by restoring him or her to the financial position the victim would have been in had the accident not happened. It also holds a negligent party accountable for careless or wrongful acts.
What is Negligence?
Negligence is a key part of personal injury law. It refers to the failure to act with reasonable care. There are four main elements of negligence:
- Duty of care
- Departure from the duty of care
- Direct cause
- Damages suffered
There must be clear and convincing evidence that the defendant had a legal or ethical obligation to act in a certain way, and that the defendant failed to meet this requirement. The breach or violation of the defendant’s duty of care must be the direct or actual cause of the injury or loss being claimed by the plaintiff (injured party). Damages refer to the losses suffered by the plaintiff because of the defendant’s actions or inaction.
