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.
