Press release from: The Cartwright Law Firm

Every year, thousands of Californians are injured in accidents caused by the negligence of someone else. Many of these people end up pursuing a personal injury or negligence claim. There exist four different elements that must be demonstrated to prove negligence in a personal injury case, according to the Cornell University School of Law. These are:
- legal duty
- breach of legal duty
- proximate cause
- actual injuries, damages, or losses

LEGAL DUTY
The first element that must be proven in a personal injury case is the existence of a legal duty. What this means is that the person alleged to have caused an accident that gave rise to injuries must have a duty of reasonable care. For example, a person operating a motor vehicle on a public roadway has a legal duty to use reasonable care when driving.

BREACH OF LEGAL DUTY
The next element that must be proven to establish negligence in a personal injury case is a breach of the legal duty by the party alleged to have caused the accident in question. The example of a motorist helps to illustrate what is meant by breach of duty. An automobile driver breaches a duty of care by driving through a red light.

PROXIMATE CAUSE
In addition to demonstrating a legal duty and a breach of it what technically is known as proximate cause must be established to prove negligence. In basic terms, proximate cause means that the breach of a legal duty must be the actual and legal cause of the accident and injuries sustained. As part of establishing proximate cause, a demonstration must be made that the accident and resulting injuries were reasonably foreseeable by the individual said to have breached a duty of care. If a person runs through a red light, a reasonably foreseeable result is that the driver will collide with another vehicle that has the right of way causing injuries to passengers in that automobile.

ACTUAL INJURIES, DAMAGES OR LOSSES T
he last element that must be proven to establish negligence when making a personal injury claim is actual injuries, damages, or losses. Injuries cannot be merely speculative. A person who desires to make a claim cannot contend that they may have some type of problem at a future point in time.
