What Must Be Proven in Order to Obtain an Award in a Car Accident Case?

To successfully litigate your claims in a personal injury case, you must prove the other driver’s negligence by showing:

  • The driver owed you a duty of care to operate their motor vehicle in a safe manner;
  • The driver breached their duty of care;
  • That breach caused your injuries; and
  • Damages. This is especially important when those costs exceed what is available from the at fault driver’s insurance policy, your PIP, and/or your uninsured motorist coverage.
