In order to pursue a claim, you have to be able to prove that the other party was intentionally doing the action, was negligent, or is legally liable.

For example, if someone shoots you with a gun, or intentionally runs you over with their car, then is a form of intentional wrongdoing.

Under California law surround negligence, a party is responsible for injuries done to another person if they were acting carelessly. During a negligence trial, a judge/jury is responsible for determining what a normal person would have done after hearing the facts of the case. Excuses such as being intoxicated aren’t good enough to excuse someone from their negligent actions.

Duty: Everyone has a duty to act reasonably in order to protect others from harm. For example, a store owner is supposed to protect customers from slipping and falling. Someone whose driving a car, has the duty to not be texting while driving.
Damages: In order to win a personal injury claim, you need to be able to prove there were injuries that happened. Damages occur in the form of physical injuries, emotional injuries, financial loss, or property damage.
