Do You Have an Injury Claim?
What You Need To Prove To Have a Successful Case Resolution
If you want to sue someone who caused your injuries and/or property damages,
then the responsibility to prove their fault is on you. While in criminal
court, a prosecutor must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, in civil
court, you only have to prove beyond a preponderance of evidence. This
means that you have to prove that the negligent party
more likely caused your injuries than not.
Elements You Need in a Personal Injury Case
There are four elements that every plaintiff (person bringing the lawsuit)
needs in a personal injury case:
The defendant (negligent party that you are bringing suit against) had
a duty of care towards you. Every person has a duty to act reasonably safely toward other people and
if they are not, then there are consequences for their negligence.
The defendant breached their duty of care towards you. If the defendant acted recklessly or negligently, then they failed in
their responsibility of reasonable care.
The breach of duty of care was directly involved in your injuries. In order to prove your personal injury case, you must show that the negligent
actions of the defendant were directly involved in why you incurred the injuries.
You must prove that you had actual monetary loss. In a personal injury case, you must show that the negligence of the other
person caused injury that resulted in lost wages, medical bills, pain
& suffering that can be monetized, or another type of financial loss.
