The law requires that every person and entity will follow a reasonable code of conduct as to not cause harm to other people. Negligence lawsuits are civil cases that can be brought against an individual or entity accused of breaching that obligation. There are many types of negligence cases, but some of the most common are medical malpractice, trucking or car accidents, and slip and falls. Negligence doesn’t involve deliberate actions that would rise to the level of criminal behavior, but rather refers to careless action or inaction that has caused injury to a plaintiff’s person or property.

There are several elements that must be proven for a party to prevail in a negligence case. Contact us to discuss the specific facts of your case.
