When you hire us, we are ready to fight on your behalf.  Our experienced team of lawyers will relentlessly pursue justice for your injuries and losses.

What Elements Are Required to Prove Negligence in a Car Accident Claim?

If you sustained traumatic injuries in a San Antonio car accident, your life may be altered significantly due to another party’s negligence. In order to recover fair compensation for your losses, you must prove that the other party’s negligence directly caused your injuries.

To prove the other party was negligent, you must show the following:

  • The Other Party Owed You a Reasonable Duty of Care. If a driver chooses to get behind the wheel of a vehicle, they are assuming a reasonable duty of care towards all others who are sharing the road. This means they must obey all traffic laws and regulations and drive with consideration for others’ safety. Additionally, car manufacturers owe drivers a duty of care to provide them with safe parts and products in their vehicles.
  • The At-Fault Party Violated the Reasonable Duty of Care. To recover damages for the injuries you sustained, you possess the burden of proof to establish that the other party violated the duty of care owed to you.
  • The Violation Directly Caused Your Injuries. You must provide evidence to show how the violation of the duty of care directly caused your injuries in the accident.
  • The Car Accident Caused by the Liable Party Resulted in Damages. In order to recover compensation in a car accident claim, you must prove that you sustained harm as a result of the incident.

If you have been injured in a car accident, you may be eligible to recover the following damages:
