Determining the negligent party’s duty of care
In personal injury cases, the law outlines the duty of care citizens are responsible for upholding. In most situations, private citizens have a reasonable duty of care to other citizens to follow the law to the best of their ability and remain aware of their surroundings.
In the case of auto accidents and driving under the influence, the driver in an altered state has failed to uphold their duty of care to follow the law and remain aware of their surroundings. This negligence can also apply to reckless and aggressive drivers who fail to obey traffic laws.
If you suspect that a private citizen, company, or the state has failed to uphold their responsibilities, and it resulted in your personal injury, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
