The Core Issues of a Personal Injury Claim
Every personal injury claim will involve two important matters: liability and damages. Petitioners seeking to file a claim, will be tasked with identifying who is believed to be responsible for the accident that led to the injuries. Additionally, the petitioner is required to assert the nature of the damages.
Personal injury cases in California follow the theory of negligence, which is the failure to exercise reasonable care. In order to obtain compensation in a case, petitioners will need to establish negligence, which can be demonstrated through the following four elements:
Duty of Care
A duty of care is the legal obligation that requires a party to exercise a standard of reasonable care, which is set to prevent harm to others. A duty of care can encompass a variety of different things, such a person’s duty to drive safely, or a doctor’s duty to provide reasonable care. It should be noted that an accused party does not have to have a personal connection or know the plaintiff in order to owe him or her duty of care.
Breach of Care
A breach of care occurs when there is a violation of said duty of care. A defendant that has breached a duty of care can either fail to act in a reasonable manner or intentionally act in a careless manner. In most cases, the defendants will be aware that their actions would result in another’s injury.
Causation: The Breach of Care Lead to the Injury
Causation is the direct link between the defendant’s breach of duty and the plaintiff’s injury or damages. In order to assert negligence, the plaintiff’s injury must have been caused as a result of the defendant’s breach of duty.
The damages in a personal injury claim refer to the injuries the plaintiff suffered as a consequence of the breach of duty.

When the negligent or willful act of another party has caused you to suffer a serious injury, you have the legal right to seek compensation through a personal injury claim. Personal injury cases, however, can sometimes involve complex legal matters that involve legal proficiency. For example, many victims find that they are being blamed for causing the accident. In other challenging matters, there may be more than one at-fault party involved. Regardless, obtaining compensation following an accident is critically important to a suffering victim.
