Role of Negligence in Personal Injury Cases

A key component of personal injury law is the recognition of negligence and the role it plays in cases of this nature. Defined, negligence refers to any conduct that falls short of the standard behaviors that have been established by law. Meant to enforce protection against any unreasonable risks of harm, when these laws are not respected the negligence of their disobeyers may be responsible for causing great harm. When a person acts negligently, it is said that he / she has failed to respect the level of conduct expected of a person who would otherwise be acting prudently in a similar situation.

As such, acts of negligence are very often the cause of personal injury accidents. Negligent drivers frequently cause car collisions; negligent property owners frequently cause slip and fall accidents; and negligent elder caretakers frequently cause illness and injury to residents of nursing home facilities. The list of negligent acts is extensive and an attorney should at once review your injury accident in order to determine whether or not negligence was at play when you were injured.
