Element of A Personal Injury Claim

To establish grounds for a personal injury, claim due to the Defendant’s careless or reckless actions, 4 elements must be present:

  • The Defendant must owe the Claimant a duty of care prescribed by law.A typical situation where a duty of care is owed applies to how people motorists navigate their vehicles on roads.A duty of care is owed to:
  • If you are considering a slip and fall situation, the owner of the property who could be a business owner or private individual, owes a duty of care to all users of the property.
  • If you are looking at injury caused by a medical malpractice, what is relevant is the applicable standard expected of medical professionals in a similar circumstance.
  • The Defendant must have failed to exercise reasonable care. Determining what is reasonable may vary from situation to situation but will largely depend on the standard of care a reasonable person would exercise in similar circumstances.
  • The Defendant’s recklessness, carelessness or failure to exercise reasonable care should have caused the injury to the Claimant.The injury must be directly attributable to the Defendant’s failure to exercise due care in the circumstances for a successful claim to be made. The relevant question in every instance then is, would the injury have occurred but for the Defendant’s negligence?
  • The Claimant must suffer some damage resulting in medical bills, disability, lost income, property loss, emotional distress, lost income or pain and suffering, comparative negligence, loss of enjoyment or loss of consortium. Loss of consortium refers to compensation paid for damages suffered by a family member injured or killed by the Defendant’s failure to exercise due care.
