Holding Wrongdoers Responsible in a Jacksonville Motorcycle Accident Case
Florida law establishes four elements that must be satisfied in order to prevail in a Jacksonville motorcycle accident case. You must first establish what is legally known as a duty of care. A motorist on the roadways of Florida has a duty to operate a car in a reasonably safe manner.
You must next demonstrate what is called a breach of that duty of care. An example of a breach of care is a motorist running a red light. In order for liability to be established in a Florida personal injury case, proximate cause must exist. Proximate cause means the breach of the duty of care must be the legal and factual cause of the accident and your injuries.
Finally, in order to prevail in a Florida car accident case, you must also demonstrate actual losses, damages, and losses. They cannot be merely speculative or hypothetical.
