How to Establish Liability in Personal Injury Law

The vast majority of personal injury claims are considered civil lawsuits, and as such, the burden of proof (e.g., the responsibility to prove establishing negligence) lies with the plaintiff. This means that the injured party must prove by the preponderance of the evidence (“more likely than not”) that the other party’s negligence directly caused the injury in question.

4 Elements to Prove Negligence in Personal Injury Cases

To successfully establish liability in a personal injury lawsuit, injured Texans must successfully demonstrate these four elements to the court: 

  1. Duty of Care – The plaintiff must establish that the offending party owed them a certain level or standard of care. 
  2. Breach of Duty – The claimant must show that the negligent party breached that duty of care, leading to injury.
  3. Causation – The plaintiff must show that this breach of duty directly caused the injury or illness in question. 
  4. Damages – Also known as the “made whole” rule, the claimant must also demonstrate that recoverable (compensatory) damages are possible to improve their condition or situation (“make the plaintiff whole”).
