Personal Injury Defense Guide

Negligence occurs when a person fails to exercise ordinary care.

Ordinary care is what a reasonably prudent (careful) person would do under the same or similar circumstances.

Prepare To Win

ELEMENTS OF PROOF

To win a case, the plaintiff (person bringing the suit) must prove:

  1. The  defendant (person being sued) owed a legal duty to the plaintiff. When people are driving in vehicles, they owe a duty of ordinary care to others on the roadways. In many settings, people owe legal duties to each other. However, there are circumstances where there is either no duty owed, or a very slight duty. In order to determine if a legal duty is owed in a specific situation, you should consult a lawyer
  2. The defendant was negligent;

AND

    3. That negligence caused the plaintiff's injuries or damages.
