Negligence Action FAQs
Let’s talk about an increasingly common negligence action: a driver causing a car accident because they were texting. In this scenario, the driver had a duty of care to operate their vehicle safely and to obey traffic laws. However, by choosing to text while driving, the driver breached their duty of care. As a result, they caused the accident and may be liable for any damages or injuries caused to other drivers, passengers, or pedestrians involved in the accident.
Negligence actions can occur in many other contexts as well, such as in medical malpractice cases, slip-and-fall accidents, product liability claims, and more. In each case, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant had a duty of care, that the defendant breached that duty, and that the breach caused the plaintiff's injuries or damages. If successful, the plaintiff may be entitled to compensation for their losses.
An accident is an unexpected or unforeseeable event that occurs without anyone's fault or intention. For example, a tree branch falling on a car during a storm could be considered an accident because it was not caused by any human action or negligence.
Negligence, on the other hand, refers to a failure to act with reasonable care, which leads to harm or injury to another person. In other words, negligence involves a breach of a duty of care that a reasonable person would have exercised under similar circumstances.
As you can see, there is a significant potential for gray area in these cases—space that insurance companies are all too happy to take advantage of. If you believe another person’s action or lack of action led to your injury, you need an attorney who can prove that negligence and fight for the compensation you deserve.
It isn’t always necessary or advisable to accept an insurance settlement. Insurance companies will always try to do the bare minimum and may overlook the true extent of your damages. It’s best to consult with an attorney as soon as possible, who will negotiate on your behalf and ensure that you are getting a fair offer.
If we cannot come to a reasonable agreement, The Rubinstein Law Firm is prepared to go to battle for you in court. While we’ll do everything in our power to settle out of court, we won’t back down if and when this path becomes necessary.
