- Negligence occurs whenever another person, entity, or company acted negligently to cause injury or harm. Legally speaking, the word negligence means failure to deliver reasonable care.
- The liability in negligence cases rests on the side of the business or person providing services. If you have a medical negligence case, the liability belongs to the hospital or medical professional. In the case of a workplace accident, the employer or supervisor may be found to have been negligent.
- The types of damages in general negligence cases varies. If damaged, you can be compensated for several different types of harm. Negligent cases can hold defendants liable for harm to the plaintiff’s body, property, mental well-being, financial status, or intimate relationships.
However, it is impossible to gain compensation for any of these damages without a negligence or personal injury lawyer. Negligence and liability laws are very murky and you will not be able to reach a favorable settlement on your own. Hiring an experienced attorney is your best chance at winning a negligence case in civil court.
