There is shock, frustration, and suffering after a multi-vehicle crash, regardless of what caused it. Thankfully, you have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit for compensation if you have incurred losses […]
The essential element in any personal injury case is proving negligence. This is not always easy for a layperson to understand, but the lawyer must be able to prove that negligence occurred. What is even more difficult is being able to make the differentiation between simple negligence and gross negligence.
When bringing a personal injury claim or lawsuit, it is up to the lawyer to prove the existence of negligence. The first two things that are necessary are:
While this may appear to be a simple process, that is certainly not always the case. It can be quite difficult to prove gross negligence since it must be a willful act where the negligent party did something it knew could cause injury to another person. For example, if a limousine company sends a driver to pick up passengers in a vehicle it knows has faulty brakes, and the driver has an auto accident that results in injuries to those passengers, the company may indeed be guilty of gross negligence since it knew of the problem and willfully disregarded it.
Unfortunately, most cases involving gross negligence are not simple. The lawyer must conduct a great deal of research in order to assess the level of negligence that is involved, whether gross negligence or ordinary negligence. Many times a case that originally appears to be gross negligence, is ultimately considered ordinary negligence because there is simply not enough evidence to support a claim of gross negligence.
