Understanding Negligence

Successful personal injury lawsuits are based on the notion of negligence. Generally, negligence occurs when a person, party, or employer acts recklessly and causes injury to another person.

Our personal injury attorneys establish negligence by showing that the at-fault party:

  • Had a legal responsibility to ensure the plaintiff's safety;
  • Failed - through conduct, action, or inaction - to fulfill that legal duty; and
  • The plaintiff was harmed or injured as a result.

If you have been injured as a result of another party's reckless, careless, or negligent actions, you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit.
