Proving Negligence in a Florida Personal Injury Case
In order to recover compensation for the losses you have incurred due to an accident, you will need to prove the negligence of the at-fault party.
There are 3 primary components of negligence, including:
- Duty of care – This refers to an individual’s obligation to not cause injury to another person or place them in harm’s way. To prove someone’s negligence, you will first need to demonstrate that the at-fault party owed you a reasonable duty of care.
- Breach of duty – If it can be established that the person owed you a reasonable duty of care, you will then need to prove that he or she breached that duty. In other words, you will need to demonstrate that the at-fault party created a dangerous situation or allowed a dangerous situation to persist. This can be challenging since what is deemed “reasonable” is left open to interpretation and varies from situation to situation.
- Causation – It is not enough to prove that the defendant owed you a duty of care and that they breached that duty. To win a claim for compensation, you will also need to demonstrate that the breach led to your accident and injuries. Although the defendant may admit that they were negligent, this does not necessarily prove that their negligence caused your injuries. The defendant may claim that your injuries were caused by something that you did.
