What Justifies a Personal Injury Case?
Personal injury deals with “torts,” and cases in this field of law are based on “negligence.” A tort is “an act or omission that gives rise to injury or harm to another,” and negligence is a legal term that essentially translates to “carelessness.” More specifically, negligence deals with the “duty of care,” which people owe each other by default in many situations.
For example, when you get a drivers’ license and accept the privilege of driving, you also accept a duty of care toward other drivers, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians on the road. This same duty of care applies to any driver who may have harmed you.
To prove negligence and win a personal injury case, you must show:
- The person who harmed you (the defendant) owed you (the plaintiff) a legal duty of care
- The defendant violated their duty toward you
- You suffered an injury
- The defendant’s violation caused your injury
If you believe all of the above is true, your situation likely justifies a personal injury claim.
