Elements of a Bergen County Personal Injury Claim
In order to successfully recover compensation for a personal injury claim, you will have to prove that the other party was negligent. You will have to show that this negligence resulted in the accident that caused your injuries.
Our Bergen County personal injury attorneys will prove negligence by demonstrating the four elements below:
Duty of care
We will show that the at-fault party had a duty of care to you at the time of the accident. We will show that they were required to act with reasonable care to prevent any harm from occurring.
Breach of duty
We will show that the at-fault party did not act in a manner that demonstrates reasonable care. We will show that they were in breach of their duty towards you.
We will provide evidence that proves that the at-fault party was responsible for the accident. We will show that the accident would not have occurred if it weren’t for the negligent actions of the defendant.
We will show that the defendant is liable for physical, emotional and financial damages. These may include medical expenses, lost wages and pain, and suffering.

New Jersey adopted the comparative negligence theory. This means that the court will consider the role the injured party played in causing the accident. The compensation awarded to the injured party will be reduced in proportion to the percentage of responsibility they are assigned. The injured party will receive compensation as long as their negligence is considered less than that of the defendant.
