What is Negligence?

In order to determine whether or not you will be able to make a successful personal injury case, you need to understand the concept of negligence. If your injury was caused by another party's negligence, then you may have a valid claim.

Negligence is most generally described as acting in a careless manner, such that another individual or party is harmed as a result. We all owe other people a duty of care, meaning that we should act in safe and reasonably careful ways. A breach of this duty is considered to be negligence.

Types of Damages

In a successful personal injury case, you may be awarded damages, or monetary compensation. There are two main types of damages that may be won—compensatory and punitive damages.

Compensatory damages are awarded in order to directly compensate you for your losses. Typically, you may receive compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Damaged property
  • Pain and suffering

Punitive damages, on the other hand, serve the purpose of punishing the offender and deterring him or her from taking the same line of action in the future. Our skilled attorney is a natural litigator and will aggressively advocate for your rights so that you may be awarded the damages you deserve.
