What is the basis for a personal injury or wrongful death claim?
Any such claim requires three things: (1) a duty owed to another person; (2) the breach of that duty; and (3) damages/harm. The laws in each state in the U.S. say a person (or company) generally owes a "duty of reasonable care" toward every other person. Basically, this means that we must each exercise ordinary care and not cause harm to anyone. That's the "duty" part. But frequently, people "breach" that duty by being careless, forgetful, reckless or just plain stupid. That's the "breach" part. The simple truth is that we have probably ALL breached our "duty" of reasonable care at some point; and if that is as far as things progressed, then we were fortunate. But in the situations that constitute valid grounds for personal injury and wrongful death claims, there is more: the breach of the duty of care resulted in the injury or death of another person.
Duty, Breach, and Damage/Harm. It is in those situations that the injured person—the "victim," and often the "plaintiff"—have a lawful claim for personal injuries or wrongful death against the party at fault. This is true whether the act or omission of the at-fault party was negligent, "innocent," "accidental," "reckless," intentional or even criminal. That at-fault individual or company is "liable" to the victim or his surviving family members for the victim's physical pain, mental and emotional suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, lost earnings, medical expenses, and other economic losses. Even when the person at fault is facing simultaneous criminal charges for his actions, the victim may bring a "civil" lawsuit against him for pain and suffering.
