What Should You Do if You’ve Been Injured in an Accident?
Was Your Accident the Result of Another Person’s Negligence?
The concept of negligence refers to the failure of an individual to act rationally or exercise reasonable care. Florida law states that every individual must act as carefully as a sensible person would in a similar set of circumstances. Proving negligence in a personal injury case can be difficult. In personal injury cases based on negligence, you and your Melbourne injury lawyer must prove that the other party was negligent. That is why evidence and proof become integral to drafting a strong claim.
To do this, you must first establish that the negligent party (defendant) owed you a duty of care and show that they breached that duty. Once established, you must show how the defendant’s breach of that duty of care led to your injuries. The injury victim (plaintiff) must demonstrate how the actions taken or omitted by the defendant failed to meet the level of care required under those circumstances. In personal injury cases, “reasonable” depends on the evidence and facts of the case.
