Personal Injury Rights | Lawsuits
Personal injury lawsuits are generally based on a claim of negligence.
Personal Injury Rights | Negligence
Negligence is the failure to use reasonable care to prevent harm to oneself or to others.
The elements of a cause of action for negligence are well established and include the following:
- A legal duty to use reasonable care;
- A breach of the duty to use reasonable care; and
- A breach of the duty to use reasonable care which resulted in economic and/or non-economic damages/injuries suffered by the plaintiff.
Example Scenario 1: Jake is driving his car westbound on Broadway near the intersection with 24th Avenue in Golden Hill. He has a legal duty to use reasonable care while driving. Jake though, fails to stop for a red light as he crosses the intersection and t-bones Maria who was driving southbound on 24th Ave. As a result, Maria suffered a broken pelvis and missed 8-weeks of work. Jake is liable for the lost wages (economic damages) incurred by Maria as well as her pain and suffering (non-economic) damages.
