In order to evaluate a personal injury case, first, we look at who had a duty in this case. For example, as a driver, you assume the responsibility to drive in a safe manner rather than a reckless manner. Next, we look at whether the person who caused the accident neglected that duty and had a breach of duty. Now the question is regarding causation – did that breach of duty cause the accident?” Now we look at if there were damages such as economic (ex: lost time from work) and non-economic damages (ex: pain and suffering).
