How to Prove that Someone's Negligence Led to Your Injuries?

In order to prove that someone's negligence led to your injuries, you will have to show that the negligent person or company had a duty of care which was breached, and the breach of duty was the reason for your injury, which in turn, resulted in financial damages and losses.

Personal injury law is also known as tort law and is designed to protect you if you are injured or harmed because of someone else's action or failure to act. In a successful tort legal action, the defendant compensates the plaintiff. To prove the defendant's negligence, Florida law requires plaintiffs to show evidence that:

  • The defendant had a duty not to injure you and failed to live up to that responsibility
  • There is a link between the duty of the accused and your injury
  • You suffered damages or financial losses as a result of the accident

Negligence can emerge in any context, including products liability or motor vehicle accidents. For example, a driver injured in a big rig collision will have to prove that the truck driver’s or another party's actions fell below the standard of care. An example of actions that fall below the standard of care would be a truck driver who runs a stop sign, or the makers of a truck part when the collision was caused by a defective component of the vehicle.
