Negligence refers to the failure of someone in taking the proper care in doing something. It can include the wrongful action or inaction of a person which contributes to a car accident. For example, a person’s use of a cell phone while driving may be negligent, especially if it leads to distracted driving and causes a wreck.
Car accident lawyers seek to prove negligence by gathering evidence about the car accident including witness statements, dash cam footage, “black box” data, and other things. Sometimes, an expert in accident reconstruction and human factors may be consulted in order to better understand the specific circumstances leading up to a wreck.
In order to be successful in a personal injury claim in Louisiana, you must prove that the other party was negligent. Understanding how to do this may mean the difference between winning and losing your case.
