Proving a Personal Injury Case in Maryland
In order to be successful when you take your personal injury case to court in Maryland, you generally have to prove that the person responsible for your injury was negligent and that they are legally responsible to provide you with compensation. Your personal injury lawyer in Maryland must prove the following elements in court:
- The Defendant Owed You A Duty
- The Defendant Breached That Duty
- You Suffered Injuries/Other Damages
- The Defendant’s Breach Was The Proximate Cause Of Your Damages
If you’re trying to prove that someone was negligent and responsible for the injuries you suffered in a car accident case, for example, you would need to prove all of the above elements. In Maryland, the simple act of being an insured driver on the road automatically satisfies the first element. All drivers in Maryland have a duty to drive safely and follow the traffic laws in order to avoid injuring other drivers. Therefore, all drivers have a duty to reasonably protect other drivers on the road whenever they get behind the wheel.
Proving that the other driver breached this duty can sometimes be very simple, such as if the driver was texting and driving or was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In other circumstances, it can be more difficult to prove a breach. If there aren’t any witnesses or video footage that can help determine who was at fault for the accident, more investigation might need to be done. For example, if you hire a personal injury lawyer in Maryland, it might be necessary for them to consult with an expert who can reconstruct the scene of the accident and determine who was at fault.
If you’re able to get over the hurdle of proving that there was a breach, it’s usually a bit easier to prove that you suffered actual injuries and that the injuries were a result of the car accident. Anytime you’re in an accident, it’s a good idea to go to the hospital right away. Even if you don’t think you have any serious trauma, you might be suffering internal injuries that you aren’t aware of. It’s helpful to have all of this documented in the event that you decide to move forward with a lawsuit in the future.
