Proving Liability in a Personal Injury Case
Along with the aforementioned duties, our personal injury lawyers serving Suffolk County, NY can prove the liability of the defendant and the value of your damages if your case goes to trial.
This proof is generally done through a four-step process:
Establishing the Defendant’s Duty of Care
New York law states that people have a duty not to put others at an unreasonable risk of harm. This principle is called one’s duty of care.
The following parties must uphold a duty of care:
- Property owners
- Product manufacturers
Proving That the Defendant Breached Their Duty of Care
A breach of duty of care looks different based on the details of each case. Such an occurrence may include a drunk driver or a property owner’s failing to install handrails. These are just two of countless examples of how the duty of care may be breached.
Here, we will aim to prove that the defendant’s actions contributed to or caused your injuries or loved one’s death.
We will present medical and economic evidence to establish the damages you are entitled to recover based on your losses.
