You May Be Able to Hold the At-Fault Party Accountable in Your North Bergen Personal Injury Case
All personal injury cases require the plaintiff to prove negligence and liability. The type of evidence necessary to do so depends on how you sustained injuries, the available proof, and other factors. To prove negligence, as defined by the Legal Information Institute (LII), you may need to gather evidence to prove:
- The other party had a duty to do something or not do something to keep you safe.
- They failed to do or not do the aforementioned action.
- That failure led to your accident.
- You sustained physical and financial harm as a result.
In some straightforward cases, proving negligence may be enough to hold the at-fault party or company liable and recover a payout. However, in some cases, another party may be vicariously liable, or there are other hurdles you must clear before taking legal action.
For example, a trucking company may be vicariously liable if their driver caused an accident by acting negligently behind the wheel while working, for instance being distracted by eating and drinking, texting, or messing with the stereo according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
While these cases may be more complex, our team knows what it takes to potentially prove negligence in a New Jersey personal injury case, and we will investigate the incident and gather evidence to help prove your claim or lawsuit if necessary.
