Negligence is one of the essential pillars in any personal injury case. In fact, it’s so crucial that most of the work in your personal injury case will focus on proving that the other party’s behavior was negligent. If you and your New Jersey negligence attorney can’t prove negligence on the part of the other party, then your personal injury case won’t be successful. You might be wondering—what does negligence mean in an injury claim, and how exactly do lawyers go about proving it? When you work with the New Jersey negligence lawyers from Varcadipane & Pinnisi, PC, they will work tirelessly to prove negligence in your case.
The basic definition of negligence is failure to take the proper or reasonable care in doing something. In the legal realm, negligence is generally the failure to act in a way that another prudent person would. When pursuing a personal injury claim, you must prove that the at-fault party acted in a manner that wasn’t consistent with the way someone else typically would have in the same scenario.
There are four elements that must be established in a successful personal injury claim:
Once you’ve established duty and breach of duty, you’ve shown the court that the at-fault party is liable or legally responsible for your damages—the consequences of their actions.
While you aren’t required to have the representation of a New Jersey negligence lawyer, you can see why having one is a smart decision. Proving the elements of negligence, keeping track of and filing documents, obtaining experts and other resources, and collecting evidence, among other things, are challenging for even the most knowledgeable layperson. If you are trying to recover from your injuries, all of these steps can be incredibly overwhelming—so much so that you might be willing to accept whatever small offer the other party’s insurance company gives you. As tempting as it might be to get this predicament over and done with, don’t do it. You have the right to talk to a New Jersey negligence attorney to determine if they can help you and if the settlement you are offered is fair.
