Most personal injury cases rely on the legal theory of negligence. This is a broad
that we all have an inherent responsibility to act with reasonable care around one another.
For example, we have a legal responsibility to follow traffic rules, watch for
keep the property we own safe and maintained. Professionals like physicians, nurses, and
have a legal responsibility to provide adequate care and a safe workplace. When we violate these
terms and someone else suffers harm as a result, we call it “negligence.”
Establishing duty of care. First, an attorney must establish that the defendant (person being sued) owed the plaintiff (victim) a “duty of care.” Drivers owe a duty of care to others on the road, physicians owe a duty of care to their patients, and manufacturers owe a duty of care to their consumers, for example.
Showing a breach. Next, a personal injury attorney must show the defendant violated his or her duty of care by committing negligence.
Proving cause. A West Virginia personal injury attorney must not only show that the defendant violated a duty of care, but also that the negligence directly led to the injury.
Illustrating extent of the damages. Finally, the plaintiff’s attorney must show that the victim suffered damages as a result, such as medical bills or lost wages from missing work.
