The Basics of Negligence and a Personal Injury Claim in Stroudsburg
A person commits an act of negligence when they fail to act in a way that a reasonable person in the same situation might – negligence is the backbone of all personal injury claims. Indeed, with few exceptions, in order to hold another party liable for damages and recover compensation following a serious injury, a victim must prove that the other party owed them a duty of care, breached the duty of care owed to them, and that this negligence was the direct cause of their injury.
Two of the major exceptions to the above are in regards to car accident cases and dog bite claims. While negligence-based actions maybe pursued in certain circumstances, the state of Pennsylvania follows a no-fault system for car accidents, which means that drivers will turn to their own insurance companies for compensation before filing a claim against the at-fault driver; the injured party can step outside of the no-fault system if they have suffered serious injuries. In regards to dog bites, Pennsylvania is a strict liability state, which means that a dog bite victim can hold the dog owner liable without having to prove negligence.
