Car accidents, like most personal injury cases, revolve around the legal concept of negligence. This means, at its basic level, you’ll need to prove someone else caused you to get hurt.

We know that proving negligence requires three factors.
- You must prove that the defendant acted in an irresponsible manner; that they behaved in a way which runs counter to the way in which any reasonable person would behave under similar circumstances. This is sometimes referred to as the “reasonable person” standard.
- You must show that this irresponsible behavior is what led to the accident you suffered.
- You have to demonstrate that the accident was the proximate or direct cause of your injury.
Of course, the insurance company will do everything it can to see to it that you’re found to be at least partially responsible, which means you need someone in your corner who can help you prove negligence on the part of the other driver.
