Holding a Negligent Defendant Liable for Damages
Personal injury claims usually are brought under a theory of negligence. Therefore, the injured party must prove that the defendant’s careless actions caused the accident. To succeed in a negligence claim, the injured party must prove that the defendant owed a duty of care, additionally that the defendant breached the duty of care. A injured party must also show that the defendant’s actions caused their injury and lastly that the injured party incurred actual damages.
Each person has a general duty of care. Since the circumstances of each accident are different, the duty owed to the injured party will vary.
Atlanta, Georgia, Trucking Accident Attorneys
In truck accident cases, for example, a driver owes a duty to other people on the road. Therefore, they must exercise reasonable care while operating their vehicles. Truckers breach their duty of care when they engage in careless behaviors. For example, when they fall asleep behind the wheel, violate traffic laws, fail to properly load their cargo, execute dangerously wide turns or neglect to apply the brakes in time to stop their heavy big rigs.
To prove that the defendant’s actions caused the accident, the injured party must demonstrate that it would not have occurred but for the defendant’s careless behavior. In addition, the injured party must show that the defendant’s actions were the proximate cause of the accident, meaning that it was a foreseeable result of the careless conduct.
Lastly, a injured party is required to prove the amount of damages that resulted from the defendant’s negligence. Damages in negligence and personal injury actions may extend from economic damages like past and future medical expenses, lost income, and property damage to non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering or emotional distress.
