Negligence refers to the failure of a person, group of people (including corporations and/or municipalities, or government agencies) to exercise a “standard of care” that another reasonable person, with equitable knowledge and experience would exercise in a similar situation. Thus, their negligence has resulted in an injury to the victim or the victim’s family. Negligence by the defendant in a rear end auto accident for example, might include failure to maintain a safe distance, which resulted in personal injury to the plaintiff, ranging from spinal injuries, to soft tissue injuries, to complex regional pain syndrome, to traumatic brain injury or even wrongful death.« Back to Glossary Index
