The Four Elements of Negligence
Personal injury cases require the injured plaintiff and their attorney to establish four key elements in order to prove their claim--duty, breach of duty, causation, and damages. All four elements must be present in order for the plaintiff to secure a settlement.
This is what each element of negligence means:
A duty of care is a legal obligation to act reasonably and prudently in order to prevent harm to others. This duty can include a driver’s responsibility to others on the road. It may be a business owner’s obligation to have property that is safe to be on. Doctors have a duty of care to their patients. The presence of duty is an essential prerequisite in personal injury cases.
Breach of Duty
Once the duty of care is established, the plaintiff must demonstrate that the defendant breached that duty. A breach of duty occurs when the defendant fails to exercise the level of care that a reasonably prudent person would have exercised in the same situation
