What Does It Take To Succeed With A Personal Injury Claim In Savannah?
In personal injury cases, an injury victim charges that his or her injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence. Victims of negligence are entitled to compensation, but you and your accident attorney must prove these “elements of the case” to prevail with your personal injury claim:
- The defendant (the party presumably liable for the accident and injury) had a “duty of care” to the plaintiff (the accident victim).
- The duty of care was breached by the defendant’s negligence.
- The defendant’s negligence was a direct cause of the plaintiff’s personal injury or injuries.
- The amount of compensation sought by the plaintiff is fair, just, and should be paid by the defendant.
The duty of care is different in different situations. As drivers, for example, we owe a duty to other drivers, their passengers, and pedestrians. It is a duty to drive with reasonable caution and care.
Homeowners owe their visitors only a basic, reasonable duty of care, but for business owners, the duty of care may be more exacting, as businesses must take certain steps to ensure the safety of employees, contractors, clients, and customers.
Product manufacturers must ensure that their products are reasonably safe for the public when used as directed and that adequate instructions and safety warnings are provided to buyers.
