Succeeding in Your Car Accident Lawsuit
To receive monetary damages in your case, you must prove through evidence and witness testimony that another driver was primarily at fault for causing your crash. More specifically, the available evidence and testimony of witnesses should establish the following.
The Responsible Party Violated a Legal Duty to Act Carefully
Every driver has a responsibility to operate their vehicles reasonably and carefully. When the responsible party is not a driver, you must establish that the person’s conduct was unreasonable under the circumstances.
The Other Party’s Conduct Caused Your Crash and Injuries
Next, your car accident attorney will show how the other party’s actions and unreasonable behavior caused your accident. There may be multiple causes for your crash, but your lawsuit can proceed as long as the other party was primarily responsible.
You Have Injuries and Need Financial Compensation
Finally, you must show the court that you have injuries, expenses, and losses attributable to your crash injury for which you have not received compensation. Bills, explanation of benefits statements, attendance records from your workplace, and other documentation are usually required to establish this element of your case.
