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.

    Have Said...

    Alexander C. – Harnett County Property Owner

    “Reggie Kelly is a fantastic attorney with fantastic paralegals. My wife and I have been using him and his firm since 1983 when we first purchased property in Harnett County 37 years ago. He offers excellent legal advice and guidance. He never gets in a hurry to get us out the door because of his next appointment. He always takes the time needed to check out all of the issues that might come up. Reggie Kelly is a proud American and he loves our country and he wants everyone to do well. Reggie Kelly is an even finer person than he is a fantastic attorney and we are very fortunate to also be able to call him and his wife Cheryl our friends. We give him a 10 STAR Review!”
