Burden of Proof in New Jersey

People who are injured due to the negligence of someone else may be subject to significant burdens for years down the road. Of course, there is often a great deal of frustration when an accident is glaringly the fault of another party’s negligence because their mistakes led to an injury. At this point, the injured party may be faced with high medical bills, the cost of rehabilitation, time out of work resulting in lost wages, and even loss of enjoyment of life. When the circumstances are serious, it may be beneficial to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss legal options.

One of the major factors of any personal injury case is fulfilling the burden of proof. This simply means that the injured party is required to show that the negligent party knew or should have reasonably known about the dangerous conditions that caused the accident and failed to remedy the issue. This can be done by taking photos and videos of the conditions prior to leaving the scene, obtaining a witness testimony, and more. An experienced personal injury attorney can assist in finding additional evidence that may help fulfill the burden of proof. If you have been injured, contact us today.
