What is negligence?
Personal injury claims often rely on proving negligence on the part of the defendant. If a person fails to act in a manner consistent with that of a reasonable individual and someone is injured as a result, the individual may be accused of negligence. A judge or jury may decide that a person was negligent if he or she failed to protect others from unreasonable harm or injury.
