How Does Negligence Affect a Car Accident Claim?

Negligence is the basis for most personal injury claims, especially car accident claims. Having worked on countless numbers of cases over the years, we have seen car accidents stemming from many different forms of negligence, from reckless drivers to poorly constructed roadways.

If you have been in an accident, it will be necessary for you to prove that negligence played a role in your auto accident. We have seasoned Ft. Lauderdale car accident attorneys, and we know precisely what to pinpoint when evaluating car accident cases. If you have any questions at all, please contact us!

What Is Necessary to Prove Negligence?

The law defines negligence as any time a person acts without thought or care for the safety of others; in turn, his or her senseless actions is what led to an accident or harm to someone else. Negligence comes in many forms—drunk driving, speeding, and even driving without wearing one’s glasses or contact lenses. By proving that someone was negligent, this can be used to give weight to your car accident claim.

These are the elements that comprise a negligence claim:

  1. The driver owed a duty of care to others sharing the road by driving safely.
  2. The driver breached that duty of care, such as choosing to drive drunk, driving their vehicle above the speed limit, or committing a traffic violation that leads to an accident.
  3. The driver’s actions are what caused an accident to occur.
  4. You and/or another party was injured from the accident.

Your circumstances will certainly be unique from other types of cases, so there are certainly no cookie-cutter solutions. We know that our efforts can help you successfully obtain the fair amount of compensation due to you. We have helped clients obtain millions in compensation.
