Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer

A “personal injury” references a legal dispute that arises when one person suffers bodily harm from an accident or injury, and another party could be held legally responsible for that harm. Accidents that result in personal injuries can end in fatalities or in injuries that can affect victims for the rest of their lives.

What Can Be Considered as Negligence in a Los Angeles Personal Injury Case?

Although there are various theories of liability for personal injury, many personal injury claims occur because someone has been careless (or “negligent”). The legal definition of “negligence” is failure to behave with “reasonable care under the circumstances.”

To successfully prove negligence in a personal injury case, you must be able to prove four things:

  • Duty of care: The person who caused your injury owed a duty to you to avoid acting carelessly under the circumstances.
  • Breach of duty: The person who owed this duty to you acted carelessly under the circumstances.
  • Causation: This person’s carelessness/negligence proximately caused your injuries.
  • Damages: Because this person owed you a duty of care and acted carelessly, you suffered an injury and incurred damages. In legal terms, your injury and any other losses you obtained from the injury (such as medical expenses or reduced paychecks) are called “damages.”

All four elements must be proven in order for a personal injury victim to recover damages for their accident. For help proving your personal injury case, consult with an attorney who understands the negligence laws in California and has the legal experience needed to effectively present your case.
