About Negligence

How Negligence Causes Personal Injuries

Negligence may be most simply defined as a failure to act with proper caution or care, causing injury to another person. Negligence may stem from an action or a failure to act, as long as the result is that the person did not act as a reasonable person would have in the same or similar circumstances. For example, when a person is driving, he or she has an obligation to obey the rules of the road and also to drive in a responsible manner. A driver who is texting while driving may be considered to be negligent. If he or she causes a car accident as a result of this conduct, he or she may be held accountable in a resulting personal injury claim.

Negligence is directly connected with personal injury claims and lawsuits. These cases may be brought about when a physical or emotional injury is caused by negligence, intentional wrongdoing or strict liability. Negligence is the most common grounds for personal injury claims throughout the United States.

If another person caused an accident or injured you in any way as a result of carelessness, recklessness or general negligence, you may have grounds to seek justice against them for what you have experienced. It is important to discuss your options with a legal professional who understands the process of filing a claim and then proving the other party’s negligence. In a car accident case, for example, your attorney can work with crash scene investigators and accident reconstruction specialists to prove that the other driver caused the accident, and why. This can help you recover the full financial compensation you need for medical care, lost earnings, and possibly much more.
