One of the most important aspects of a personal injury case is determining which party is at fault.

One of the most common standards used to determine fault in a personal injury case is negligence. Some of the legal elements required to prove negligence for a liable party include:
- Proof of a breach of legal duty owed by the defendant to the plaintiff
- Actual damages incurred by the plaintiff
- Proof that the plaintiff’s injuries were a direct result of the defendant’s actions
While these criteria might seem straightforward, it can actually be an incredibly complex process to adequately establish liability. There are a number of additional factors that come into play, and every case requires an individual assessment to determine whether or not you can pursue a personal injury claim.
