Our personal injury attorneys at Heidari law have been representing accident victims for the last several decades. Our attorneys know just what it takes to make sure that you have a strong case. One of the most important things for a personal injury case is having all the required pieces of evidence. Usually, personal injury is a negligence lawsuit. In order to  prove your case, you must show:

  • Duty: the other party had a duty to act reasonably and make sure that all steps they took were proper. For example, if you are injured in a car accident, you must show that the other driver has a duty to drive safely. This duty is also established by various laws, such as the California Vehicle Code. In the event that you have been injured and slipped and fell accidently on another person’s property, the landowner had a duty to make sure that the property was safe from any liquids on the floor.
  • Breach: the other party breached this duty when they acted negligently. The other party breached this duty when they drove unsafe, or when they kept their property unsafe.
  • Causation: you must show how the other party’s breach caused the accident. Causation is oftentimes a big deal because other factors may play into the cause. For example, if there was a multiple-car collision, there may be conflict when trying to prove causation.
  • Damages: damages take into account the injuries that the accident victim suffered.
