When it comes to a personal injury claim, a person can be considered negligent if he or she fails to act like an ordinary reasonable person would in the same situation. In the context of a Riverside car accident, a driver could be considered negligent if he or she was texting and driving, as this is an action that an ordinary reasonable person would not do. Also, if the other driver was speeding or driving recklessly, that driver could be considered negligent.
In a personal injury lawsuit, your Riverside injury lawyer will be able to present the evidence in your case to show that the other person’s negligence led to your injuries. You could be entitled to compensation for your injuries that resulted from the negligent driver.
