• Negligence is a legal term used to describe a failure to exercise the level of care that a reasonably prudent person would have exercised in a similar situation. It is an unintentional act or omission that leads to harm or injury to another person. In order to prove negligence in a legal case, the following elements are generally required:
Duty of Care: The defendant owed a duty of care to the plaintiff (the injured party).
Breach of Duty: The defendant breached that duty by failing to act as a reasonably prudent person would have.
Causation: The defendant’s breach of duty caused the harm or injury to the plaintiff.
Damages: The plaintiff suffered actual damages (physical, emotional, or financial) as a result of the defendant’s actions.
