Negligence Is the Cause of Many Serious Injury Accidents
Although not all accidents are the result of negligence, many of them are. Pace University’s Guide to Common Legal Questions states that negligence occurs when someone fails to act reasonably, and someone else gets hurt due to that action or inaction.
Here is an example of negligence. A driver fails to stop at a stop sign and crashes into another car crossing in the roadway. The driver who passed the stop sign is negligent and responsible to pay damages for the injuries suffered by the driver and passengers in the other car. There are many different types of negligence, according to New York State law, and our legal team will be happy to explain how it applies to your case.
The Four Basic Components of Negligence
Proving negligence is based on these four components:
- Duty of care: the other party must act in a reasonable manner to avoid accidents and causing injury to others or property.
- Breach of duty: the other party did not act reasonably to prevent the accident.
- Damages: there were damages or injuries.
- Causation: the other party’s breach of duty of care caused the injuries and the damages.
