Daytona Beach Attorney | Daytona Beach Lawyer Handling and defending a Civil Liability case Legal liability means responsible for a particular action or debt. In contrast with the criminal liability that deals with any criminal actions done by a person civil liability deals with wrongdoing against a private party. The legal standards for a person charged with civil liability are less than that of criminal liability. However it requires a strong defensive lawyer to fight a civil liability case in order to avoid the verdict of guilt. A strong Daytona Beach attorney can represent a civil case aggressively in a court with the help of different arguments and defenses. These defenses are generally considered under two categories: 1 Negative defense: These defenses are used to directly oppose or defeat the claim of the prosecution. Some of these defenses are: A. Contributory Negligence: Making points that prove that the actions of the injured party contributed to its own harm. B. Comparative Negligence: Making points that prove that more than one party were liable for the harm caused to the injured party. This will split the liability among all the liable parties.

C. Assumption of risk: Making points that prove that the injured party was somehow indulged in a dangerous activity and that they were aware of the danger and consequences associated with that activity. This will lower the compensations required to be paid to the injured party. D. Act of God: Proving that the incident that injured the prosecution party was caused due to the act of god. E. Limitation or Liability Clauses: The contracts that are signed beforehand representing no liability on the defendant about the injury caused by actions of the injured party can be used in a court by the defense. F. Superseding cause: Making points that prove that the defendant didn’t cause the injury and was caused by some other reasons or person. 2 Positive defense: These arguments affirm the events and the defense take full responsibility for the actions but they raise some points that produce an alternative explanation of the event. Some of these defenses are: A. Comparative Negligence: Making points that prove that more than one party were liable for the harm caused to the injured party. This will split the liability among all the liable parties. B. Plaintiff’s harm is limited: If the party bringing the case doesn’t bring up the proof of damage then the case is eliminated. Also if the plaintiff fails to

relieve the harm when such instances arise then the defense cannot be held responsible. C. Intervening cause: If the injuries were made worse by the actions that were not related to the initial accident then the defense won’t be responsible for the injuries. These defenses can be used by an expert Daytona Beach attorney in a court to lower the compensation that a person may be tempted to give an injured party without their assistance.
