What is a Personal Injury?
California personal injury laws cover situations where an individual suffers harm due to someone else's negligence, intentional actions, or strict liability.
To succeed in a personal injury lawsuit in California, several elements need to be proven:
- Duty of Care: The plaintiff must show that the defendant owed them a duty of care. For example, a driver has a duty to operate their vehicle safely and responsibly.
- Breach of Duty: It must be demonstrated that the defendant breached their duty of care. This breach could involve actions like reckless driving, failure to maintain safe premises, or medical malpractice.
- Causation: There must be a direct link between the defendant's actions or negligence and the plaintiff's injuries. The plaintiff needs to show that the defendant's breach of duty was the direct cause of the harm suffered.
- Damages: The plaintiff must have suffered actual damages as a result of the defendant's actions or negligence. These damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and more.
In many cases, personal injury lawsuits hinge on proving negligence. This involves showing that the defendant did not act as a reasonable person would have in a similar situation, thereby causing harm to the plaintiff.
