Negligence Lawsuits


Negligence is conduct that falls below the standard of care established by law for the protection of others against unreasonable risk of harm.  In effect, negligence is the failure to act diligently, or to exercise proper care to avoid injury to others. Negligence litigation is the process of filing a lawsuit where the plaintiff alleges the defendant has acted negligently causing harm to the plaintiff.  This litigation nearly always seeks monetary damages from the defendant as reimbursement of expenses incurred in repairing harm.
