Accidents Caused by Negligence

Negligence is defined as a lack of reasonable care, therefore, any accident that is caused by negligence can easily be avoided by a little more care on the part of the negligent individual. While there are many cases where accidents are caused by adverse weather conditions and are usually unavoidable, the vast majority of accidents are caused by negligence on one or more individual's part. The negligence of these individuals that cause serious accidents can also cause some very serious injuries and even wrongful death in some cases.

If you or your loved one has been seriously injured in a car accident, slip and fall accident or other accident due to the negligence of another then you may be able to collect monetary compensation for your injuries. A representative from Durante, Bock & Tota, PLLC will be able to provide you with the skillful representation that you will need on your side in order to maximize your chances of a favorable outcome of your case in court if you choose to work with us.

Injured by the negligence of another?

In order to be able to obtain money damages in a personal injury case you must be able to prove two things:

  • The party at fault acted negligently
  • Their negligent acts caused your injuries

In order to prove that they acted negligently you must be able to prove that they owed you a duty of care as in the case that you have the right-of-way on the road, and that they violated this duty either on purpose or accidently. If it was accidently you must be able to prove that any reasonable person would not have made this mistake. If you are seeking damages in your case, then you will greatly benefit from the legal assistance of a skilled and experienced Yorktown Heights personal injury attorney from our firm. Contact us today to retain our skilled assistance to maximize your chances of a favorable outcome.
