Anyone who has suffered harm or lost property in an automobile accident as a result of another driver’s carelessness or negligence is entitled to compensation. The injured person must demonstrate that the negligent party owed them a duty of care, that this duty was broken, that the breach caused the accident, and that the accident genuinely caused damage. To put it another way, it is the injured person’s responsibility to establish that the negligent party owed them a duty of care.
