What is negligence?
Proving negligence is the defining purpose in personal injury cases; it is the grounds for receiving compensation from a party that has injured you. Negligence happens when a person or entity acts without reasonable care or ability, resulting in the injury of another.
Negligence can occur when someone fails to do something that a normal, prudent person would do, or when a person fails to meet applicable professional standards. For example, the owner of a business can be held liable for a slip-and-fall personal injury if he or she failed to put up a warning sign about a wet floor or slippery spot.
If someone else’s negligence has caused an injury to you or someone you love, you should speak to a personal injury attorney about your case. For more information, contact a Danville personal injury lawyer from the experienced firm of Spiros Law, P.C., today at (217) 443-4343.
