Negligence is the determining factor in all car accident cases. In order to “win” a car accident case, the plaintiff must prove that the other person was “negligent” and was the direct or indirect cause of the injury. Negligence laws define the term as a failure to behave or perform a task with the same level of care or attention that a reasonable person or party would provide under the same circumstances (or taking unreasonable action when a prudent person would not).
Basically, there has to be a “duty” – this means that the responsible party owed the plaintiff a duty. There has to be some type of “breach” of that duty – this means that the responsible party breached his or her duty by failing to act as a reasonable or prudent individual would have acted. There has to be “proximate cause” – this means that the breach of duty resulted in some type of injury or harm to the plaintiff. And lastly, there has to be “damages” – this means that there has to be some injury (i.e. medical bills, pain and suffering, etc…).
New Mexico is a comparative negligence state, meaning that when both parties were negligent, the court must determine each party’s percentage of fault and award damages proportionally. Certainly the best case scenario is to have the other person 100% at fault and you – zero % at fault.
