Proving Negligence in Personal Injury Claims
Once you hire a lawyer to help you with your case, you’ll be better prepared for what comes next. They’ll guide you through the process, which starts with proving that the other party was negligent, making them responsible for what happened to you. Your personal injury attorney will work to investigate your claim so that they can prove the elements of negligence were present.
Those elements are:
- The other party owed you a duty of care.
- That breach caused you to get injured.
- They breached that duty of care through an act of negligence.
- Those injuries led to you suffering damages.
When your lawyer can prove these elements, then it’s likely that the other party will be fully or mostly responsible for your accident and subsequent injuries. However, Texas follows a modified comparative negligence law that we call proportionate responsibility. This means that if you were at all at fault, your compensation could be reduced by the percentage you were at fault.
