Do i have to prove negligence?
In personal injury cases, the plaintiff usually has to prove that the defendant was negligent. Negligence is any act or omission by the defendant that results in a breach of their duty of care that could likely cause injuries to consumers.
However, you don’t have to prove negligence in product liability cases in California. Claims can be based on negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty. Strict liability is the most common choice.
Strict liability requires you to prove:
- The product was defective, regardless of whether the defendant was negligent or not.
- The defect was the actual and proximate cause (main cause) of the injury you sustained.
