What is Negligence?

In legal terms, negligence refers to the failure of a person to exercise care to prevent causing harm to others. When an individual does not take care to prevent a dangerous situation as a reasonable person would, or creates a dangerous situation in a way that a reasonable person would not, he or she may be guilty of negligence. In a personal injury case, proving negligence is key to holding someone liable for the damages caused by an accident.

No one should have to bear the costs of an injury caused by someone else’s negligence or carelessness. If you or someone you love has been injured by another, contact the Detroit personal injury lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C. today at (866) 644-6587.
