Determining Fault For an Accident

Most personal injuries occur due to accidents. Often, the defendants in a case did not intend to cause any harm. Regardless, those who cause an accident could be held liable in court. Many personal injury cases use the legal framework of negligence in order to seek compensation. Negligence cases apply when a defendant had a duty to care for the well-being of the plaintiff, the defendant failed in this duty, and the injured party suffered damages.

In a personal injury case, the plaintiff bears the burden of proof. The plaintiff’s attorney must prove that the defendant’s reckless actions directly caused the accident. However, the defendant can also argue that a plaintiff’s own carelessness contributed to the incident.

Modified Comparative Negligence

According to the Official Code of Georgia §51-12-33, the courts must evaluate negligence claims using the method called modified comparative negligence. This means that the courts must evaluate the actions of both parties, including the plaintiff and the defendant, when determining liability. Each party will be assigned a percentage of fault for an accident.

The injured plaintiff may be eligible to recover compensation for damages as long as they are less than 49 percent at fault. Their compensation award will be reduced by their percentage of liability. If the plaintiff is found to be more than 50 percent at fault for an accident, they may be ineligible to recover compensation for damages.

A seasoned Alpharetta personal injury lawyer could investigate the incident and collect evidence to prove the defendant’s liability.
