In order to establish a claim for bodily injury caused by the negligence of someone else, you must prove that the other person (defendant) failed to exercise the degree of care that an ordinary prudent person would act in a similar circumstance. You must prove the following in order to have a cause of action under the Law of Torts:

  1. The defendant must have owed you a duty to act in a certain way.
  2. The defendant must have failed to act like a reasonable person would.
  3. The defendants conduct was the proximate (first) cause of the injury.
  4. The plaintiff was in fact injured.

Negligence is determined by specific facts in each case. In automobile accidents these facts can range from a failure to apply your brakes in a timely fashion, failure to keep a proper lookout and a myriad of other acts committed or omitted that may or may not be meaningful. Only the experienced attorney or claims adjuster will know the difference! As a former insurance claims adjuster, John knows what is required from the insurance company to prove damages and recover the most money for your injury.
