Proving Negligence Caused Your Injury
In most personal injury cases, proving the negligence of the at-fault party is the most important part of making a claim. Our personal injury lawyers in Newark NJ will examine and investigate your case to gather evidence to prove negligence. It’s what we do!
We will demonstrate the following key elements of negligence to build your case:
Duty of Care
We’ll work to show that the at-fault party had a “duty of care” to ensure your safety. From a legal dictionary: “If a person’s actions do not meet this standard of care, then the acts are considered negligent, and any damages resulting may be claimed in a lawsuit for negligence.”
For example, grocery stores have a duty of care towards their customers. They are required to provide a safe environment in which their customers can shop. This may include regularly checking the grocery store floor for spills and not stacking heavy boxes too high. The grocery store can be held liable if someone was injured if they neglected to clean up spills or they piled boxes too high.
Breach of Duty
We’ll show that the at-fault party was negligent or careless and thus was in breach of their duty of care. For example, a driver has a duty to observe traffic laws in order to keep themselves and other drivers out of harm’s way. A driver would be in breach of this duty of care if they were driving over the speed limit.
It isn’t enough to show that the at-fault party was negligent. We’ll need to show that their negligence caused the accident that resulted in your injuries. We will work to gather the evidence needed to prove that.
For example, a landlord may claim that your accident was caused as a result of your own clumsiness and not the loose staircase railing. We will gather evidence to prove that the landlord’s failure to repair the staircase railing caused the accident and the injuries that resulted.
We will show that the accident resulted in injuries or damages and we’ll fight to get you the maximum compensation.
What Should I do After An Accident in Newark, NJ?
Accidents can be traumatizing. However, the steps you take after an accident occurs will play a major role in the outcome of your personal injury claim. Here are some simple recommendations.
Seek Medical Attention
Even if you were able to get back up and walk away from the scene of the accident seemingly unscathed, you must go to the hospital. Many injuries aren’t obvious at the scene of the accident. Some injuries have a delayed onset, so they may become more apparent after several hours or days.
Having a medical examination will ensure that any injuries resulting from the accident are identified and attended to as early as possible. Seeking medical attention also ensures that there’s an official medical record of your injuries sustained from the accident.
If you are able to, gather as much evidence from the scene of the accident as possible. This includes taking pictures and videos of the scene of the accident, talking to and recording witness statements, writing down witness contact information, and taking photos and videos of your injuries.
Report the Accident
It is important to report the accident to the relevant authorities. For example, you should report a car accident to the police. If you’ve had an accident at work, report the incident to your shift supervisor. Alert the manager if you slipped in a grocery store or movie theater and have they call an ambulance.

Focus On Getting Better
Whether your injury minor or life-changing, it is important to begin to focus on your recovery. This can mean different things for different people depending on the nature of their injuries. Our attorneys will help make this transition easier for you by fighting for the compensation you deserve.
The personal injury attorneys at Rosengard Law Group have been approached many times by victims that have compromised their claims. While it is still possible to obtain compensation for your claim, the following actions after an accident can hurt your case.
Never Admit fault
Victims of accidents are often in a state of shock following the accident. They may be compelled to apologize for the accident even if they were not at fault. If you make the mistake of admitting fault to the police or insurance company, you will seriously hinder your ability to seek compensation for your injuries. You should instead simply report the accident and call an injury lawyer to communicate with the police and the insurance companies.
Don’t Speak to the Insurance Company
Insurance companies will find ways to avoid paying compensation for your injuries. They will be quick to contact you. Be warned! Anything you say to the insurance company can and will be used against you.
It is important to get in touch with a Newark personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after the accident. Refer the insurance company to your attorney if they get in touch with you. Never speak to the insurance adjuster. Let your attorney handle all communication regarding your case.
Don’t Share Anything on Social Media
In this era of social media, people are often quick to share information about their accidents with their friends. Don’t do this! The insurance company can easily twist a comment you made on social media to their advantage and get out of paying you the compensation you deserve. Don’t even share non-accident stuff. It’s best to go dark for a while until we secure your settlement. Even a selfie of you sitting on your sofa can be used against you.
Don’t Settle Prematurely
Some injuries such as whiplash, may become apparent later. Some victims even develop complications that require further medical treatment. It is important to avoid settling your claim before you have been fully evaluated by a doctor.
You could easily make a mistake and settle for less than what you will be required to pay for your full medical expenses. You could end up taking a huge financial loss if you don’t have an experienced injury attorney on your side fighting hard for the maximum compensation you deserve.
Don’t Sign a Release Without An Injury Attorney Present
Your insurance company might ask you to sign a release before your compensation is paid. Signing these forms releases the at-fault party and the insurance company from future liability or payments for the same accident. Take your time. Speak with us before signing anything the insurance company sends you.
