How do I determine responsibility?

In order to determine whether or not another party is responsible for your injury, you must prove that his or her negligence contributed to your injury. To successfully do this, four factors must be present:

    • The supposed party at fault owed a duty of care to the injured party (or to the general public as a whole)
    • This duty was breached
    • The breach of this duty resulted in injury to the plaintiff
    • Damages were incurred
