of another then our firm will be able to help you file a lawsuit against
the negligent individual. In order to have a personal injury lawsuit,
you must be able to prove that the other individual acted negligently
and that their negligence caused your injuries.
In order to prove negligence on the part of the other individual, you must
establish two elements:
- The other person owed you a duty of care, as in the case of you crossing
the street where you have the right-of-way.
- They violated this duty of care, by attempting to go through the intersection
An accomplished Morristown injury attorney from our firm will be able to
aggressively fight to see that these elements are established and proven
so that we may maximize your chances of a favorable outcome of your case
in court. It is highly important that you
contact our firm as soon as possible in order to begin the process of building a strong
defense of your case.
