Holding a Negligent Driver Accountable for Your Injuries
Negligence is the legal theory behind most car accident cases. Negligence holds a person responsible for the harm they caused to others as a result of their carelessness. To establish a negligence claim in Georgia, you must prove four elements. The four elements are duty, breach, causation and damages. You have two years from the date of the accident to file a claim in Georgia.
A negligence case in Georgia is defined as the degree of care that would be exercised by a reasonable person under the same or similar circumstances as those faced by the defendant. Drivers must exercise reasonable care while operating a motor vehicle. They must avoid posing an unreasonable risk of harm to others on the road. This duty is owed to other drivers and passengers. This also applies to cyclists and pedestrians. A driver breaches the duty of care when they fail to operate their vehicle under this standard. Additionally the element of causation requires you to prove that the accident would not have occurred if the defendant had met the appropriate standard of care.
Damages in car accident cases must be reasonably ascertainable and not too speculative. They may include economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are car repairs, medical expenses and lost wages. Non-economic damages consist of pain and suffering of the collision. But, in some cases, your actions may have been a factor in causing the crash. However, that will not stop you from recovering damages because Georgia has adopted a principle of modified comparative negligence. This means that as long as you are less than 50% at fault, you may recover damages.
