Whose Negligence Caused Injury
Unsure Whose Negligence Caused Injury
In some cases, the determination of who is at fault is easy, particularly in two-vehicle accidents, in cases in which someone may have run a red light, and in similar situations. The issue of who is at fault for an accident becomes more difficult in cases where there are multi-vehicle accidents. In our system, there can be multiple at-fault parties for an accident; anyone involved in an accident can be substantially at fault even if he or she barely contributed to the accident.
Premise liability cases and dog bite cases are dependent upon the facts. In a premise liability case, we would need to show either that the owner knew or should have known that there was a dangerous condition on the premises, regardless of whether the owner created such a condition. In a dog bite case, we would need to show that the dog had a vicious propensity. From there, we could show negligence and even strict liability.
