    The obligation of one person to avoid injuring another (or placing them in danger) – In legal terms, this is known as the “Duty of Care.
    The breach of that Duty – The individual who owed that duty of care failed to live up to it.
    Causation or establishing responsibility – Once you prove the duty was breached, it establishes who the at-fault party is and that their actions caused your injuries.
    Damages or what your injuries have cost you emotionally, financially, mentally, and physically – Includes compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other financial losses attributed to your injuries.
