What is Negligence in a Personal Injury Case?

If you have recently been injured in a car accident, truck accident, or personal injury case you may be wondering “what is negligence in a personal injury case” or “how can I prove negligence to qualify for damages after an accident”.

How to Prove Negligence In Tennessee or Georgia to Qualify for Damages

An injured plaintiff in Tennessee or Georgia must prove four things to recover damages:

  • duty on the part of the defendant to act according to a specific standard of conduct to avoid risk of injury to others;
  • A breach of that duty by the defendant;
  • That the breach of that duty was the proximate cause of the plaintiff’s injury; and
  • That the plaintiff actually suffered damages in some way.

Work With a Personal Injury Lawyer To Prove Negligence

If your claim is missing even one of these elements, you will not recover anything for your car wreck or personal injury claim, either in settlement or at trial. For a more detailed analysis of how the facts of your car wreck or personal injury apply to these elements, call 423-892-5533 and speak to us at Dennis and King today.
