What Constitutes Negligence?

One of the most common grounds for personal injury claims is negligence. We expect ourselves and others to a behave with a reasonable standard of care in order to prevent individuals from getting hurt. When someone does not show reasonable care, we call their behavior negligent, and hold them responsible for the consequences.

Careless, reckless, and wrongful actions and behavior can all be considered negligence. In a personal injury case, the victim must prove that the other party behaved negligently. Negligence takes many forms, from a driver who gets behind the wheel while intoxicated, to a facilities manager who fails to maintain a safety inspections schedule.

The Four Elements of Negligence in Personal Injury Claims

  • Duty of Care: The defendant must have had a responsibility to take reasonable care and precaution to prevent the victim’s injury.
  • Breach of Duty: The victim must show that the defendant violated or neglected their duty by not taking reasonable care.
  • Causation: The victim’s personal injury must have been caused by the defendant’s failure to act with reasonable care.
  • Harm: The damage of the personal injury must be physical and/or economic, and able to be compensated.

Personal Injury Negligence Claims

Personal injury negligence can be difficult to prove, especially if you are battling a company or municipality. A personal injury attorney can gather the evidence needed to build a compelling and ultimately successful claim. When one party’s carelessness causes injury, the careless party may be liable for the cost of medical bills, rehabilitation, property damage, loss of wages, and more.

If you attempt to settle a claim through an insurance company, you may end up with less compensation than you deserve, or no compensation at all. Unlike insurance companies, a personal injury attorney is your advocate. Our personal injury attorneys are committed to fighting for the maximum compensation you deserve. We understand the long term and often unseen pain and consequences of personal injuries, and we believe you deserve to be supported throughout your complete recovery.
