Personal Injury Terms: Negligence

Published on July 25th, 2013

Negligence is a legal term defined as the failure to exercise reasonable care towards others, or act in a way that any other reasonable person would do in under the same circumstances. Negligence is the basis for most personal injury cases, including those related to slip and fall accidents, premises liability, and auto accidents. In order to file a personal injury claim on the grounds of negligence, the injured person must prove that the defendant owed them a specific duty of care, that the duty was breached, and that the defendant’s action or inaction directly led to the injury.

If you have suffered a personal injury due to someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible for damages, including compensation for your medical bills, loss of income, and pain and suffering.
