To win an accident claim, the injured party must prove:
- The accident would not have occurred but for the defendant’s careless behavior
- The defendant’s actions were the proximate cause of the accident, meaning that it was a foreseeable result of the careless conduct
- A certain amount of damages resulted from the defendant’s negligence
Damages in negligence and personal injury actions may extend from economic damages (i.e. past and future medical expenses, lost income, property damage, etc.) to non-economic damages (i.e. pain and suffering or emotional distress).
