The roller-coaster rise and fall of temperatures we’ve experienced this winter has created some tenuous driving conditions – warm, rainy days have turned to cold, icy nights.
If you’re like us, you depend on your vehicle for a lot. You’re also a careful driver, watching out for other cars, cyclists and pedestrians, and never texting.
But even the most skilled and alert driver can become the victim of another person’s poor decisions. When you’re involved in a car crash due to someone else’s actions, you may need an attorney to recover any damages to your vehicle or for personal injuries.
In car accident lawsuits, the term ‘negligence’ is often used. But what does it mean, exactly? And how does your attorney prove that the other driver was negligent?
In legal theory, negligence is the failure to use reasonable care in order to prevent injury to another person or to property. Victims of car accidents are entitled to compensation for injuries, pain and suffering, lost wages, and property damage.
