Personal Injury Law in Wilmington, NC
Personal injury law requires the injured party to establish fault or negligence on the part of the defendant to succeed in their claim.
To prove fault, three key criteria must be demonstrated:
- Duty of Care: This duty of care typically arises when one person’s actions or omissions create a reasonably foreseeable risk of harm to others. For example, a driver has a duty to operate his/her vehicle safely and follow traffic laws to prevent accidents.
- Breach of Duty: This involves demonstrating that the defendant failed to act reasonably or violated the standard of care expected in the given circumstances. It may involve proving that the defendant acted negligently, recklessly, or intentionally, thereby deviating from what a reasonably prudent person would have done in a similar situation.
- Cause of Injury: The injured party must demonstrate that the defendant’s actions or negligence directly caused or substantially contributed to their injuries. This requires showing that the injuries would not have occurred had it not been for the defendant’s breach.
By meeting these three criteria—duty of care, breach of duty, and causation—the injured party can establish fault in a personal injury claim. It’s important to consult with a knowledgeable injury attorney who can help gather evidence, evaluate the strength of your case, and present a compelling argument to prove fault and seek the compensation you deserve.
Why Is It Important to Work With a Personal Injury Lawyer Who You Trust
How Does Contributory Negligence Factor into Personal Injury Cases?
Contributory negligence is a legal doctrine that can significantly impact personal injury cases.
Contributory negligence essentially states that if the injured party– the plaintiff– is found to have contributed to their own injuries in any way, even to a small extent, they may be barred from recovering any compensation from the other party– the defendant– involved in the incident.
Under contributory negligence, the injured party must be completely free from any fault or negligence to recover damages. If the plaintiff is found to have contributed even slightly to the accident or their injuries, they may be deemed partially at fault.
