What is negligence?

Negligence is the failure of an individual or entity (such as a corporation) to act in a way that a reasonably prudent person would behave under the same circumstances. Plaintiffs in civil cases have the burden of proof to show that a defendant breached the applicable standard of care (negligence), and that he or she suffered damages as a result. If an injury occurs due to the negligence of someone else, the injured person can recover damages to compensate for his or her injury. Swartz & Swartz, P.C. handles many types of cases involving personal injury arising from negligence of a third party.
