Negligence as the basis of car accident injury claims in Bolton
In most car accident injury claims in Bolton, we will rely on the concept of negligence to establish that you were not at fault for the accident and therefore deserve to receive compensation for the injuries and financial losses you have sustained. Negligence refers to the failure of others to avoid causing you harm. Demonstrating this failure requires us to prove that the actions taken by the people you are holding responsible for your accident did not meet the level of care required under the circumstances.
All vehicle drivers, for example, have a legal duty to use reasonable care and attention to avoid harming anyone when using the roads. Drivers who violate the law by, for example, speeding, will have failed in their duty of care and will thus be guilty of negligence. If we can then prove that this negligence led to the accident that caused your injuries, we will be able to recover compensation on your behalf.
