The Elements of a San Fernando Valley Personal Injury Case
There are many different types of personal injury cases, but they generally involve similar elements. The elements to an injury lawsuit are as follows: a duty of care was owed, that duty was breached, an accident was caused by the breach, and a person was injured as a result of the accident. Many plaintiffs ask us about the duty of care and what it means. Plain and simple, we all have duties of care. We are all responsible for conducting ourselves in a manner that does not unreasonably expose the people around us to harm. When we act in a negligent manner, we are breaching that duty. Therefore, most negligent acts satisfy the first requirement. As for the other parts of a personal injury case, your attorney will need to prove that your injuries were caused by the negligence and that those injuries caused you pain and suffering, as well as financial damages.
Different Types of Personal Injury Cases
No two personal injury cases are alike, but there are some common categories that we can place certain types of cases into. Some of the most common types of personal injury cases that SM Law Group handles include:
– Auto accidents and car crashes
