How Do You Prove a Personal Injury Case?
Negligence is the primary defining factor in almost every injury case. It means that someone acted in a manner that was grossly careless, irresponsible, or contrary to what any reasonable person would do in a similar situation, and that action (or lack of action) caused someone else to get hurt.
Here are some examples of potential causes for a personal injury suit: If you’re in a restaurant and there’s cooking oil spilled on the floor which nobody has bothered to address or warn patrons about, and you slip and fall, hurting yourself, the restaurant has been negligent in their duty to provide a safe place for you to be. If your cell phone catches fire due to a defective battery and you suffer a serious burn as a result, the manufacturer has been negligent. If you’re driving and someone drives through a red light, smashing into your car, the driver is behaving in a negligent manner.
