Holding Individuals Accountable for Their Negligence in Naples

Seeking Justice for Injured Parties

If you were injured in an accident where someone else is to blame, you should not have to be responsible for the expenses and losses you suffered. The financial burdens should shift to the person who caused the accident. You can seek to hold them accountable by proving that their negligence was a significant factor leading to the incident. To do this, you must demonstrate that the other party owed you a duty of care but breached it. Building your case requires compiling evidence and compellingly presenting the facts to convince the insurance company or a judge or jury that you are owed compensation. Because of everything involved, personal injury cases can be challenging, but you don’t have to do everything on your own. An attorney can provide the advice and guidance you need at every stage. 

Our team at Pittman Law Firm, P.L. truly cares about helping people pursue the financial recovery they need and deserve following an accident caused by someone else’s negligence in Naples.

Negligence is one of the most common theories personal injury cases are based on. Under this principle, the injured party argues that the defendant (the individual who caused the accident) was expected to exercise a certain level of care in a given situation. However, their conduct fell below the accepted standard, resulting in a dangerous or fatal accident. As such, they are liable for associated damages.

    This firm was recommended by (2) separate doctors. These doctors knew our case was “too small” for the big firms. We would not be treated seriously.

The theory of negligence is comprised of the following four elements:

  • Duty of care: The duty of care is a legal obligation to act with a level of caution that would be exercised by a reasonable person in similar circumstances so as not to cause injury to others. For example, a motorist is expected to drive safely to avoid accidents.
  • Breach of duty: When someone’s actions fall below the expected standard, they could be considered in breach of their duty of care. To illustrate, suppose someone has a few alcoholic beverages before getting behind the wheel. A reasonable individual could have foreseen that driving drunk might result in harm to others. The drunk driver, therefore, has breached their duty of care.
  • Causation: The individual’s breach of duty of care must have been the proximate cause of the accident. This element answers the question, “Would the accident still have happened if not for the defendant’s actions?” For example, would a drunk driver have collided with the other vehicle if they weren’t impaired by alcohol?
  • Damages: The person bringing the claim against the negligent individual must have suffered expenses and losses. If there are no damages, there is nothing to be compensated for.

Negligence can contribute to various types of accidents, including car wrecks, slip and falls, and bicycle collisions.

A Naples negligence attorney can review your case and help determine if you can file a personal injury claim based on the theory of negligence.
