Consulting An Attorney After An Accident
Most motor vehicle accidents are the result of negligence by one or more drivers. An accident victim seeking to hold someone responsible for negligent driving will typically need to prove four things:
- The defendant's duty to the victim;
- A breach of duty;
- Actual damages
A driver may breach a duty to use reasonable care while driving in a variety of ways, such as by texting while driving, talking on the phone, driving while tired, driving drinking and driving, or tuning the radio.
