What Constitutes Negligence in Texas Personal Injury Law? 

Proving liability in a personal injury lawsuit can be the most challenging part of recovering damages. Because the burden of proof lies with the victim (plaintiff) in personal injury cases, working with a knowledgeable lawyer is imperative to recovering fair compensation. 

The mere existence of injury isn’t enough to recover damages in a personal injury lawsuit. Instead, negligence is determined by establishing four key elements: 

1. Duty of Care

The victim is responsible for establishing that the defendant owed them a duty of care. Texas law defines this duty as the legal responsibility of a person or organization to avoid any behaviors or omissions that could reasonably be foreseen to cause harm to others. 

2. Breach of Duty

The plaintiff is responsible for proving that the defendant “breached” or violated their duty of care by acting negligently. For example, if the victim was injured in a car accident because another driver ran a red light, it can be argued that the offending driver had a duty to obey Texas traffic laws.

3. Causation

Causation is often the trickiest element to prove in a personal injury case. It’s crucial to consult with a qualified personal injury attorney who can help you gather and present compelling evidence to prove that the wrongdoer’s negligent actions directly caused the accident, resulting in your wrongful injury. 

4. Damages

Finally, the plaintiff must establish that they suffered actual damages as a result of their injury, such as lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering. Our Amarillo lawyers can help you maximize the value of your claim by seeking to recover all available damages, including economic damages (financial losses) and non-economic damages (non-financial losses).
