What do you have to prove in a personal injury claim?

In a personal injury claim, it is necessary to prove that your injuries were caused by the intentional acts or negligence of another person or entity. If you claim that your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence, you will have to prove that:

  • The other party owed you a duty of care.
  • They breached this duty of care through some act or omission.
  • Their breach of the duty of care directly and proximately caused you injury
  • Your injuries have resulted in some compensable damages.
