Vital to almost every personal injury case is proving negligence. Negligence is a level of care that would be exercised by a reasonably prudent person. This doesn’t necessarily need to be an intentional act, but rather an act of carelessness that leads to an injury. When this occurs, a Personal Injury Attorney can fight to hold the responsible parties accountable. This way, the injured person can be made whole after an accident. If you are unsure about negligence in your case you can contact us for a free consultation. We are happy to help and if we can't represent, we will point you in the right direction.
Driving presents many instances where negligence can occur. When someone is texting behind the wheel instead of focusing on the road, they are negligent. A reasonably prudent person understands that taking your eyes off the road for even a few seconds can lead to injury, so a reasonably prudent person would not engage in this behavior. When a person texts behind the wheel and causes an accident, they are liable for injuries caused by their behavior.
This is not the only example of negligence, obviously. Failing to clean up a wet floor, drinking and driving, and more are all examples of negligence that can cause a person harm.
A Portland Personal Injury Attorney can review the facts of your case and identify instances of negligence. Once identified, they will fight to get you every penny you deserve. From medical bills to lost wages to future medical treatments, they will make sure that you are made as whole as possible after an accident.
