How to Prove "Negligence"

Proving negligence depends on demonstrating that the other person failed to take reasonable precautions to avoid causing an accident. For example, if a store owner failed to clean a spill or to set out "Wet Floor" signs, a customer can sue for injuries suffered in a slip and fall accident.

Similarly, you can sue another person for texting while driving and causing a car accident. Another way to prove your case is to show that the other party acted carelessly, such as in a drunk driving accident where the drunk driver is clearly at fault for the collision.
