Auto accidents can range from devastation multi-car pile ups to fender benders and can result in soft tissue or more severe injuries. Unfortunately in some cases it may take months or years to determine exactly what personal injuries were received from an auto accident. Legal claims arising from motor vehicle accidents are governed by the law of negligence. Generally, people who operate automobiles must exercise “reasonable care under the circumstances”. A failure to use reasonable care is considered to be negligent.
A person who negligently operates a motor vehicle may be required to pay for any damages, either to a person or property, caused by his or her negligence. The injured party, known as the plaintiff, is required to prove that the defendant was negligent, that the negligence was the approximate cause of the accident and that the accident caused the plaintiff’s injuries.
