If your injury resulted from the negligence of someone else, you might be entitled to money damages to compensate you for your suffering. Negligence occurs when someone fails to exercise the case toward others that a reasonable or prudent person would use in the same circumstances.
Perhaps the most common example of negligence is the everyday car accident that occurs when one driver fails to pay attention, causing his car to collide with another, sending innocent occupants of the other vehicle to the hospital. Every auto accident is unique, with different causes and different injuries and losses. But most car accidents result from a driver’s negligence or momentary lapse of attention. Common acts of negligence include failing to keep your eyes on the road in front, rear-ending a vehicle; failure to yield the right of way, t-boning another vehicle; and unsafe lane change, sideswiping another vehicle. But there are also sinister events that cause car accidents: such as road rage, drag racing and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
In addition to car accidents, some other examples of negligent conduct causing personal injuries include: medical malpractice as a result of a physician performing surgery on the wrong location in the body, causing further pain and suffering; construction debris or an object falling from a construction site and hitting a worker, causing bodily harm; trip and fall on a premises because the walkway floor is broken, slippery, or cracked, especially where the needed repairs were obvious or apparent; and injuries caused by defective products.
In every negligence case, prompt action must be taken to preserve evidence; expert assessments must be made to investigate the causes; and physicians and other experts must evaluate the losses.
In general, money damages are awarded in personal injury cases to compensate for property damage, medical bills, out of pocket expenses, pain and suffering, mental anguish, lost wages and/or lost income. If the conduct goes beyond mere negligence, the injured victim may also be entitled to punitive damages.
