Understanding Negligence

For personal injury cases such as slip and fall accidents, negligence is an important concept. Negligence means that the defendant is alleged to have deviated from the standard of conduct expected from any reasonable person in similar circumstances. For a favorable outcome for the plaintiff in a personal injury case, the auto accident attorney must prove that certain elements were present.

You can hear what these elements are by watching this brief video or consulting your auto accident attorney. This featured video explains that a personal injury attorney must prove that the defendant owed a duty of care to the plaintiff and breached that duty of care. The attorney must also prove that the negligent conduct was the direct cause of the plaintiff’s losses.
