When pursuing a claim for damages against a negligent driver, you must show the driver was responsible for causing your injuries. To build a successful case, you must demonstrate the elements of negligence by providing evidence of the following:
The Negligent Driver Owed You a Reasonable Duty of Care: To determine that the other driver is liable for the car accident, you must first establish that they owed you a reasonable duty of care. For example, drivers have a duty of care to keep other drivers safe when sharing the road. This includes following all driving laws and regulations, including adhering to safe driving practices and acting with prudence. If a reasonably prudent driver would not have acted similarly, then that may indicate a breach of duty.
The Negligent Driver Breached a Reasonable Duty of Care: A breach of that duty occurs if the driver acts in a way that differs from how a reasonably prudent driver would act under the circumstances. For instance, if the driver was speeding, texting, violating traffic laws, or impaired in any way, then they are breaching their duty.
The Breach of Reasonable Duty of Care Caused the Car Accident: In addition to establishing a breach of duty of care, you must also prove that their breach directly caused your accident. This means that the liable driver’s negligence actually led to your accident. If the driver was negligent, but did not cause your accident, the driver will not be held responsible for your injuries.
You Suffered Significant Damages: It is not sufficient to prove that the negligent actions of the other driver caused your accident; you must also prove that you have suffered significant damages due to their actions. This may include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damages, or other economic and non-economic damages.
Upon proving the elements of negligence in your car accident claim, you may be eligible to recover economic and non-economic damages for the losses you have sustained as a result of the liable driver’s actions.
