Holding a Negligent Defendant Liable after an Accident

A personal injury case is a legal action brought in court by someone who has been harmed by another person or entity. These lawsuits are designed to provide compensation for an injured victim’s damages. Common forms of damages include past and future medical bills, lost income, property damage, pain and suffering, and lost earning capacity, among other examples. The experienced Warren personal injury lawyers with Neumann Law Group are seeking clients from the region who have been injured in a car or other accident.

Personal injury claims are typically rooted in the legal theory of negligence. In most everyday situations, negligence refers to a failure to exercise the level of care that a reasonably prudent person would use in parallel circumstances. A key factor to consider when determining whether the defendant should be liable for an accident is whether the harm foreseeably resulted from the defendant’s conduct. For example, it is foreseeable that excessive speeding could cause a crash involving other vehicles on the road. As a result, an individual who fails to use reasonable care in this manner would likely be deemed negligent for any resulting harm.

Determining fault is not always straightforward. Michigan courts are required to use the modified comparative fault doctrine to assign fault to each party involved. Under this rule, damages are reduced if the plaintiff is found to share the responsibility for an accident. For instance, if you are deemed to be 10 percent at fault, your total award would be reduced by that amount. However, you still would be able to potentially receive compensation for 90 percent of your costs and losses.

Because Michigan uses the modified comparative fault doctrine, an injured party cannot recover non-economic damages if their degree of fault exceeds 50%. WIth this, an injured plaintiff must demonstrate that they are at most 49% responsible for an accident in order to recover non-economic damages. In cases with large amounts of damages or lopsided amounts of damages between two partially culpable parties, the difference between a finding of 49% fault and 50-50 fault can be hugely significant. It is important to note that a responding law enforcment officer’s judgment as to fault is not necessarily the final allocatin of fault that a court will use. Because of this, it is important for plaintiffs to have an effective strategy to demonstrate that they were less then 50% responsible for an accident. The lawyers at Neumann Law Group are prepared to help make that case, even in circumstances that may not appear clear-cut.
