- Duty of care: The defendant owed you a duty to act responsibly and safely in order to avoid exposing you to harm.
- Breach of duty: The defendant failed to act reasonably and responsibly.
- Causation: The defendant’s negligent actions caused a car accident in which you were injured, making them liable for your damages.
- Damages: You suffered physical, economic, and/or emotional damages.
We will obtain evidence and documentation to support your case, including:
- Accident reports

- Witness statements
- Expert opinions
We’ll also tailor our legal representation to your needs and the details of your case.
