Most personal injury cases are based on negligence. To win the case, the plaintiff must show that the defendant was negligent in a way that resulted in injuries to the plaintiff. First, the plaintiff must explain how the defendant owed a duty of care to a plaintiff. There are a lot of ways that a defendant might owe a duty to the plaintiff, such as drivers who owe a duty of care on the roads or a business owner who owes a duty to keep their property safe and clean for customers. The plaintiff must show that the defendant breached their duty of care in a way that caused an injury to the plaintiff.
Finally, the plaintiff must show how he or she is damaged. Usually, the plaintiff does this by showing how they’re injured. They also present evidence of their financial losses. Additionally, they may present evidence of their emotional injuries and mental trauma because of the accident. The plaintiff must show that their version of events is accurate.
When you’re the plaintiff in a personal injury case, the case may resolve in a number of ways. Your case may go to a jury trial.
