The most common type of personal injury claim, car accident claims are often predicated on the theory of negligence. To prove that the defendant’s negligent actions were the cause of an auto accident, the plaintiff in the case must show that the defendant failed to exercise “reasonable care” to prevent it. Traffic laws, witnesses, police reports and other tools are often used to rove who was at fault. Those found guilty of negligent action in a motor vehicle accident may be liable for damages.
