Proving Negligence in a Car Accident in Los Angeles
To properly prove an automobile accident claim, a plaintiff must demonstrate that the other motorist owed the plaintiff a duty of care to operate the vehicle in a reasonably safe manner. Plaintiffs must additionally show that the driver breached or violated that duty of care, causing the accident and resulting in the victim’s injuries and monetary losses.
Other negligent persons, in addition to the driver, may be held accountable for car accidents. For example, if a motorist is at work at the time of the accident, his or her employer may be held financially liable as well. When a car accident is caused by a flaw in the road or inadequate construction or maintenance of the road, the city or governmental entity responsible may also be held liable. A car accident claim against a government entity, on the other hand, must be submitted within 180 days (6 months) of the accident.
