One of the most complex components of personal injury law is proving that a company or person was negligent. To hold a person or a business responsible for your injuries or losses, it is essential to prove his or her behavior was negligent. How can you prove someone else is at fault? Whether it is a doctor or another drive who caused an accident, proving negligence is a process by which we need to show that the mistakes a person made where the direct cause of your loss. You must have suffered some type of loss, such as having medical problems or lost property value. Negligent behavior is very much a very individual situation. Consider the following.
In a medical malpractice case, to prove a doctor or hospital was negligent, you must show that he or she violated the commonly acceptable course of treatment. Would other doctors have made the same decisions? Were policies violated?
Police reports are often the best place to gather this information when it relates to car accidents. In most cases, a police officer will make the decision about negligence after reviewing the evidence, witness statements, and reports.
Sometimes, a slip and fall case can be the most difficult to prove. First, you need to have suffered some type of tangible problem, such as an injury requiring medical care. Second, you must show that the person or business knew about the problem (that caused the fall) and did not take action about it. If your neighbor, for example, knew about a hole in their yard and did nothing about it, that is negligent behavior. If he or she did not know, they are not likely negligent. This also applies in situations in regards to a slip and fall occurring in a restaurant or retail store. If a customer spills a drink, and you fall, but the company has not learned of the problem, it is not negligent. Providing a warning sign, such as a wet floor sign while getting a mop, is also not negligent. Proving cases of negligence is not easy to do. Nevertheless, it is something that needs to be done if you are to receive an award for your suffering. That is why it is always best to discuss your case with an attorney prior to talking to insurance companies.
