WHAT DO I NEED TO PROVE TO WIN MY PERSONAL INJURY LAWSUIT?

The plaintiff has the burden of proof in all cases. That means you must show it is more likely than not that your injuries were the result of the defendant's negligence. Even if the defendant tries to argue that you were at fault, this is called contributory negligence, you still have the right to bring a lawsuit, and the jury or judge may ultimately decide what percentage of fault each party is responsible for in causing the accident.
