Within the breadth of negligence there are special tenets particularizing the diverse individuals and/or various persons’ particular legal duties to behave reasonable for a particular set of circumstances. A wrongdoer’s negligence is typically measured by what a person of similar standing in the relevant community would have done. If you are asserting that a vehicle operator was negligent in the operation of a motorized conveyance, you would need to prove with evidence, such as deposition testimony, that the defendant not only caused you damage, but that the adulteration was caused by defendant’s failing to do or not do an act, and this fell below the standard of care for an ordinary person in that society. There is typically a heightened standard of care that would apply to professionals who rendered care or failed to render care. Examples of these types of individuals and personnel would include a doctor who misdiagnosed you, or an attorney who botched your lawsuit, or even a nurse who abused your mom or dad.
Getting a Significant Financial Recovery
Just proving negligence is insufficient. You must also prove as a Plaintiff, that you, or the person who was inured suffered “actual damage”. Most of the time, people who harm you are unable to pay because they do not have enough liquid, or other assets to pay money damages out of their own pocket. This means that if the bad actor fails to possess liability insurance, you may find it economically unfeasible to sue. At least as far as autos go, California law requires drivers to obtain and maintain automobile liability insurance. If you are crashed into by someone else, even if it is their fault, your failure to be insured, will diminish your own recovery to your economic loss, or “special damages”.
This means you would be limited to collecting lost wagers, hospital charges, loss of earnings, etc. However, you would be disallowed from receiving general damages. This includes pain, suffering and mental harm. This is because of Proposition 213 that was passed into law to assure other drivers would get insurance coverage, or be denied money for generals. Of course, if the person who hit you has no insurance, you are still up the creek without a paddle. So even though the wrongdoer could get lose their driving privilege, it doesn’t mean you can get paid. So we recommend you also obtain uninsured motorist coverage (Read here.)
