What Is Negligence?
Negligence is the failure to exercise the care that would be expected from a reasonable person under the circumstances. Personal injury scenarios often involve negligence that a person can be sued over, but not always. Some of the most common ones are car accidents and medical malpractice. Others include trip and fall, construction accidents and defective products that lead to injury or wrongful death.
When a motorist commits a traffic violation and it results in an accident, the offending driver can be accused of being negligent. Similarly, if a doctor or nurse fails to follow the appropriate procedures and the result is injury or disfigurement of the patient, the doctor can be sued for negligence and money can be recovered via a settlement or court verdict.
How Do You Prove Negligence In A Personal Injury Case?
To recover damages in a civil case, the plaintiff (person who is injured) will have to prove his/her case in court. To do this, his/her attorney must establish the four necessary elements of negligence: duty, breach, causation, and damages (these are technical legal terms that have been hotly debated in thousands of cases over the years).
Before bringing a negligence case to court, the plaintiff should first consult with an attorney to establish if the allegedly negligent party owes any legal duty or obligation. For example, all drivers owe the public the duty of driving safely and obeying all traffic laws.
Next, the plaintiff will have to prove that the other party breached his/her legal duty or obligation. This means evidence must be brought forth proving he/she acted recklessly or violated a reasonable standard of care. A conviction for a traffic violation (e.g. speeding) can be evidence of an unlawful breach of duty.
The next hurdle, which is usually the most challenging, especially in complex cases, is proving that there is a direct link between what the accused party did or did not do and the injury sustained by the plaintiff. In other words, one must prove that the negligence caused the injury. For example, if a person dies during surgery, it would have to be proven that the surgeon’s negligence was the actual cause of death. If causation is proven, then the damages can be evaluated in monetary terms.

What Can A Skilled Personal Injury Attorney Do For Me?
There are personal injury lawyers that spend large sums on advertising – but that doesn’t mean that they are the best in the business. Who you choose as your legal team can make a huge difference in how you are treated, how your case is handled and what the outcome will be.
There are many ways that an attorney can help someone who has suffered a personal injury:
- An attorney can evaluate the injury to determine what type of compensation one can potentially receive from the claim and who it can be recovered from.
- An attorney who is a skilled and experienced negotiator is more likely to obtain a more substantial monetary settlement.
- An attorney can make sure that the claim is given the attention it deserves and that the injured party is compensated in a timely manner by communicating with the other party’s insurance company and/or legal team.
- An attorney can take the matter to trial and present a case with the best chance of winning compensation.
As such, it’s a worthwhile investment of time to research your options when it comes to hiring a New Jersey personal injury lawyer.
