Several elements in the Mobile County, Alabama negligence car accident case must be met in order to prove liability and then recover the damages. The first element to be met is duty. The person that hit your or caused the accident in your case must have a duty to use reasonable care when traveling on the highways of Mobile County, Alabama.
The second element is the breach of that duty. This means that if that person has a duty not to injure you by unreasonable conduct and that person breached that duty by failing to pay attention, speeding, or taking any other action that would be a breach of that duty, then this element has been met.
Causation is the third element that must be met in a Mobile County, Alabama negligence car accident case. This means the breach of that duty must have caused the injury you are complaining of.
The last element that you have to prove is damages. Damages could include personal injury, property, and payment suffering or emotional distress. The law requires that you prove a physical injury prior to recovering emotional or payment suffering. For us, the main concern on the front end is your health and well being. Only after you have been treated and recovered will we begin to fully evaluate the case and the extent of the damages.
Personal injuries are mainly concerned with disputes between private parties; usually due to an injury suffered by an individual based on the negligence of another individual that caused the injury. The law provides a remedy for personal injury accidents by allowing the injured party to pursue a claim for compensatory damages. Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of personal injury in the U.S. today. Such injuries include brain and spinal cord injuries, head injuries, broken backs, as well as burns and amputations.
