Regardless of how you were injured – whether in an auto accident, a medical accident, a slip or fall, a dog attack, by a defective product, or by some other means – you must be able to prove “negligence” in order to have a viable case and obtain compensation for the harm done to you.

So, what is “negligence”? Negligence is a legal term that means “unreasonably careless.” To make out a personal injury claim based on negligence, you must be able to prove:

  1. The person who injured you owed you a “duty of care” – that is, had an obligation to act with reasonable care toward you;
  2. That person did not fulfill his obligation;
  3. That person’s failure to abide by the duty of care caused you to be harmed; and
  4. You were, in fact, harmed.

The following quiz will help you determine if the circumstances surrounding your injury will support a negligence case. Be sure to answer all the questions because you must prove all the elements of negligence in order to state a claim. If you can’t prove all four elements, you don’t have a case.
