Proving Negligence

Negligence in Personal Injury Cases

When a person is seeking compensation for an injury suffered in an accident, they must prove that another party’s negligent actions caused the mishap. Negligence in a personal injury case is the failure to use reasonable care, or an action that shows willful disregard for another person’s safety. As an example, when an intoxicated person drives a car, he or she is not only breaking the law, they are also putting other people on the road at risk. If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident and believe another person’s negligence caused the incident, contact an Oklahoma City personal injury lawyer to have your case reviewed. A competent attorney will be able to determine who is at fault for the accident, and hold them accountable for their negligent actions.
