Las Vegas Negligence Attorney

Reports have shown that approximately 30,000 people in the state of Nevada are injured in car crashes every year. On top of this, there are even more people who experience a personal injury due to various circumstances. Though the majority of these injuries are minor, there are far too many of them, and some of them can be extremely serious. Every injury should be treated with care and attention, no matter how it happened or how major it is. 

Regardless of whether you have been involved in a car accident or sustained a personal injury, negligence may be a factor and proving it may help you in gaining your full compensation. In order to prove negligence, you will need an experienced attorney. The claims-filing process is rigorous and pursuing your own case, while trying to heal at the same time, can be very overwhelming. Nevada generally establishes fault by proving negligence as a cause. 

Proving negligence is no easy feat. There are several factors to consider, and many facts that need to be presented. The amount of information that is required to prove negligence is substantial and takes time to gather and organize and present. For this reason, hiring an experienced attorney would be in your best interest.

Proving Negligence

Negligence is an easy concept to understand, it is simply the failure to act with due care in a particular situation. However, this concept is harder to apply to and prove in real-world scenarios. Though there are some circumstances where negligence is obvious, in most cases, there are multiple factors that play in, and it is not so black and white. This makes it essential to have a knowledgeable attorney handle your case. In order to prove negligence, they will gather information for and prove each of these required legal elements:

Duty

In order to establish negligence of a certain task, one must first establish responsibility for said task. Duty, in essence, is the legal obligation to look out for the well-being of other persons. 

Breach

Once duty has been established, it is essential to prove that the person(s) in question breached their responsibility. It must be proven that this person did something unsafe, or that their actions did not meet what an average person would do in a similar situation. 

Causation

In addition to establishing duty, and breach of said duty, you must also be able to prove that these actions (or lack thereof) were the cause of the injuries you sustained. 

Damages

Once these three have been proven, you must be able to prove the damages you are claiming. In order to do so, it is essential that you document all losses and hold onto any paperwork you receive in relation to these. 

Though negligence may be a common cause for personal injuries, it remains difficult to prove. If you have been involved in a car accident, or have been personally injured, and believe that negligence is to blame, contact Eric Blank Injury Attorneys today
