The Legal Elements of Personal Injury Cases
In order to win a personal injury claim, the plaintiff must clearly establish negligence on behalf of the defendant. It must be established that the defendant had a duty of care to the plaintiff and breached that duty. For example, in a medical malpractice claim, it must be shown that there was a patient-doctor relationship, and the health care professional did not act in a manner that those in that specialty would’ve acted. In the case of a slip and fall, it must be shown that defendant had the duty to maintain the interior or exterior premises for the safety of patrons. The responsibility for premise maintenance can often be established by gathering contracts. The injury must also be shown to be a direct cause of the defendant’s negligence. Attorney Charles W.
