As the old saying goes, accidents happen. Unfortunately, not all “accidents” are innocent. Some accidents are, in fact, the fault of a reckless or negligent party. When Ohio residents are injured in this type of accident, they may be able to seek compensation in a personal injury lawsuit.
There are many different types of accidents that can lead to life-altering injuries for Ohio residents, including car accidents, train accidents, mass transit accidents, pedestrian accidents and slip-and-fall accidents, among many others. Although each accident is different, with varying factors and circumstances that need to be taken into account, there are some commonalities across the spectrum of personal injury lawsuits.
First, injured victims will need to prove that the negligent party owed the victim some kind of duty. Next, they will need to prove that the negligent party breached that duty. And then, the victim will need to prove that the negligent party’s breach of the duty directly led to the accidents that the victim suffered.
