Relating Negligence in Your Georgia Personal Injury Claim

One of the biggest questions asked when you've been injured through no fault of your own in an accident is who is to blame? To file a successful Georgia personal injury claim you'll need to establish the party at fault for your injury and show they owed you a duty of care to keep you from harm. A breach of this duty constitutes negligence.

For example, another driver owes you a duty of care to drive cautiously, without impairment and in keeping with local and federal traffic laws. When they breach this duty by driving recklessly or while intoxicated and cause an accident you can hold them liable for the injuries you suffer from the accident. You'll need to then prove their actions were negligent of your safety and caused your injury.

You must be able to establish the relationship between you and the defendant and it must include a duty of care to ensure your safety.
Store owners owe their customers a duty of care to keep their aisles clear of hazards that could cause them to trip and fall. Local government entities owe the citizens a duty of care to keep sidewalks in good repair to avoid tripping hazards.

Depending on the circumstances of your accident you may find it difficult to prove negligence in your Georgia injury claim. You will need to provide relevant evidence of your injuries, the factors that caused the accident, and the long term results. For help in this process, a Peachtree City personal injury attorney can assist you in gathering evidence of the misconduct that led to your accident.
