Understanding The Law Of Negligence
The law required the defendant to be reasonably careful.
Drivers, by law, must always be mindful of their vehicle, passengers, and surroundings. So, in auto accident cases, this is a given. All drivers have to act in a reasonable and careful manner; that’s the law.
The defendant wasn’t careful.
The plaintiff must show that the defendant breached, or violated, their duty of care. The law asks, “What would a reasonable and prudent person do in the given situation?” If the defendant failed to act the way a reasonable person would, they’ve violated their duty of care.
The defendant’s conduct was the reason behind the plaintiff’s injuries.
If you’re the plaintiff, you have to show the injuries you received were from the defendant’s lack of reasonable care and not some other circumstance.
The plaintiff suffered losses, was injured, or both.
If there aren’t any injuries or financial losses, there’s nothing for the plaintiff to recover from the defendant. That’s why plaintiffs must keep a detailed record of their injuries, expenses, and any property damage.
Understanding The Driver's Duty Of Reasonable Care
In the past, the law has shown “reasonable care” to mean the following. If a driver fails to meet these requirements, he or she may have violated the “reasonable care” standard.
