Negligence

Negligence

A person is negligent if he or she fails to follow a duty of conduct that has been imposed upon him by the law. In other words, every person must use ordinary care to protect himself and others from injury. “Ordinary care” means the degree of care which a reasonable and prudent person would use under the same or similar circumstances to protect himself and others from injury. A person’s failure to use ordinary care constitutes negligence.

Proving Negligence

To prove negligence, the plaintiff must demonstrate, beyond the greater weight of the evidence, that the defendant was negligent and that the defendant’s negligence was the proximate cause of the plaintiff’s injury.

If you feel you have been injured due to the negligence of another, you should contact an attorney. An experienced and caring attorney will investigate your claim and help ensure that you receive full and fair compensation for your injuries and that no legal avenues for recovery are lost.

What Our Clients

Have Said...

Oliver and Sherrie M. – Car Accident

“We were hit head-on by someone who run a red light. I got bruised up real bad inside and I had just had shoulder surgery and it inflamed that. My wife was hurt the worst. It disfigured her right arm. We were referred to Mr. West through our son-in-law so we went up and set an appointment with him. We went in and met him for the first time and he is a very nice gentleman to say the least. He took over the case and found out who the [driver] was. It had totaled the car and I had just gotten it paid off. They didn’t even get hurt. Mr. West took the case and went way out of his way to help. The lady who hit us … they had only the cheapest insurance to get the car on the road … so he helped us get more money to help us pay the bills. We are very happy with how it turned out. Kelly and West, they’re good people. You can talk to them and they’re down home people.”
