Following a car crash, a victim could suffer greatly. Due to the losses and damages of a car accident, the injured party might consider filing a civil action. This could help provide them with compensation to cover expenses related to the accident.
In accidents where a negligent driver injured the victim, the victim will often need to provide a compelling case in order to prove the other driver's negligence. There are five elements that need to be fulfilled in order to prove negligence, and these elements could be supported by evidence or testimony. First, there needs to be a duty. In the case of a car accident, the driver had the duty to drive safely and uphold the standard duty of care while operating a vehicle. Next, there needs to be a breach of that duty. This could be speeding, failure to yield, texting while driving or other forms of reckless driving.
