Needof Oakland Accident Lawyer inNegligence or Accident Cases Negligence is one of the most common reasons for accident to occur. When you or a loved one is injured as a result of negligence, defined as a failure to use ordinary care, you have a potential claim for a lawsuit. Although it is impossible to list everypotential situation where negligence arises, if someone else is conceivably to blame for your injuries, the matter should be evaluated by an attorney. Negligence generally means a failure to exercise ordinary care to protect others. For example, if a farmer has an uncovered well on his property, and he fails to fence it, or cover it, and your child falls into that well and breaks his leg that is probably negligence. Similarly, if a person leaves her property in a dangerous condition, for example, if she fails to fix a cracked board on her porch and someone falls through that board, she is potentially liable for negligence. It is important to hire an Oakland Accident Lawyer in suchsituation. Negligence also arises, of course, in traffic accidents. Failure to yield, failure to signal a lane change, following too closely, and failing to stop for traffic signals are all examples of negligent conduct. In addition to negligence, of course, the plaintiff must prove damages and causation. If a person runs a red light and doesn't hit you (but only scares you), that's not a case. On the other hand, if the person runs a red light and hits you, causing you to have a heart attack, that is negligence. The best way to determine whether you have a claim is to see an Oakland Accident Lawyer. For more information about Oakland Accident Lawyer click here
