What is Negligence?

Many personal injury claims require that the injuries involved were caused due to negligence on behalf of the defendant. This is very crucial to have a valid claim against the defendant. However, what exactly is negligence?

Negligence is commonly defined as a failure to act as a reasonably prudent person would in the same or similar circumstance. In other words, negligence is when an individual is not careful and therefore harms someone else because of their carelessness.

If you are a victim of someone else’s negligence, you should not have to pay for their mistakes.
