Making Your Case for Recovery
Someone who suffers loss caused by another’s negligence may be able to sue for damages to compensate for their loss or injury. Negligence occurs when a party fails to demonstrate the kind of care a mindful person would take in the same situation thus injury results from the action or lack thereof. In order to prove negligence, the injured person must prove the person allegedly at fault, acted negligently. Most jurisdictions say that there are four elements to a negligence action:
- Duty – the defendant has a duty to others, including the plaintiff, to exercise reasonable care,
- Breach – the defendant breaches that duty through an act or culpable omission,
- Damages – as a result of that act or omission, the plaintiff suffers an injury, and
- Causation – the injury to the plaintiff is a reasonably foreseeable consequence of the defendant’s act or omission.
A plaintiff who makes a negligence claim must prove all four elements of negligence in order to win his or her case.
