Can a Santa Rosa Lawyer Prove Negligence in Personal Injury Cases in New Mexico?

Proving negligence is one of the most important things a personal injury attorney in Santa Rosa does for their clients. Typically, we find that the party that caused an accident acted in either a negligent or reckless way. 

Negligence is when a party owed a duty of care to another party and failed to complete the actions necessary to ensure the safety of the latter party.

Recklessness is when the party that caused the accident acted in an unexpected or dangerous way, resulting in the injury of another party.

If another party was negligent or reckless and caused your accident, they will be liable for all the damages that you suffer. But, you and/or your attorney must prove that this was the case before demanding any amount of compensation.
