In almost every accident, a person or entity can be held responsible for
a victim’s damages, injuries, or other forms of harm. Generally,
when a party can be held legally liable for a victim’s harm, the
responsible party is considered negligent. For a person to be considered
negligent, the opposing party must prove that the alleged responsible
person breached their duty of care.
What is Duty of Care?
The duty of care is a term used to describe the responsibility an individual
has to prevent causing harm to another individual. To prove a person breached
their duty of care, the injured individual must show how the other individual
did not meet the implied duty. After the accident victim has established
the breach, they must prove that the negligent act is what caused the
victim to suffer injuries or harm.
When Can A Person Be Proven Negligent?
In most personal injury cases, one party can prove that the other acted
negligently, causing them injury.
Below is a list of common personal injury cases where persons or entities
are proven to be negligent:
- Medical malpractice cases
- Slip and fall accidents
- Drowning accidents
- Car accidents
- Premises Liability cases
- Defective Product cases
