If you were injured due to another person’s reckless or negligent actions, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim. For your claim to be successful, it must be shown that the defendant owed you a duty of care, breached that duty of care, and the breach contributed to your injury or loss.
Duty of care can be established in many different ways. For example, all drivers have a duty to behave in such a way that does not put other people at risk. They breach this duty when they break the speed limit, make illegal turns, or drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Business establishments have a duty to keep their premises in reasonably safe condition. They breach this duty when they leave a spilled liquid on the floor for a significant amount of time, or when they fail to warn customers about dangerous conditions.
If a person or company owed you a duty of care, breached that duty, and the breach of duty contributed to your injury or loss, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim. If the breach of duty resulted in your loved one’s death, you may have grounds for a wrongful death claim.
