Orthopedic Injury | Personal Injury Lawsuit
Orthopedic injury lawsuits are generally based on a claim of negligence. Negligence is the failure to use reasonable care to prevent harm to oneself or to others. A person can be negligent by acting or failing to act.
The elements of a cause of action for negligence are well established and include the following:
- A 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: Betty is driving her car westbound on Broadway near the intersection with 24th Avenue in Golden Hill. She has a legal duty to use reasonable care while driving. Betty though, fails to stop for a red light as she crosses the intersection and t-bones Stacy who was driving southbound on 24th Ave. As a result, Stacy suffered a broken foot and missed 3-weeks of work. Betty is liable for the lost wages (economic damages) incurred by as well as her pain and suffering (non-economic) damages.
