To establish a prima facie case of negligence, personal injury law requires the presence of four key elements:
- Duty of Care: The defendant owed you a legal duty, by either action or inaction, to prevent you from being injured.
- Breach of Duty: The defendant did not fulfill this duty of care.
- Causation and Fault: The defendant’s breach of duty caused the accident that generated your injury.
- Damages and Liability: You sustained physical and financial damages from the accident.
Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. will construct each of these elements and stack them into a solid-core, legal case that will withstand scrutiny by the opposing insurers and lawyers as well asjudges, and juries. Call us at 516-932-0400 so that we can start crafting your case.
