Negligence Law

Negligence law compensates the responsibilities and burdens of an individual. Negligence explicates the civil wrong thing and is illegal as it causes damage to the people in a community. Negligence means conduct that is culpable because it misses the legal standard required of a reasonable person in protecting individuals against foreseeable risky, harmful acts of other members of society. It can further, be stated as a person falls short of his duties and responsibilities. It is an act of crime..

Negligent behavior towards others gives those rights to be compensated for the harm to their body, property, mental well-being, financial status, or relationships. Negligence is used in comparison to acts or omissions which are intentional or willful. The law of negligence at common law is one aspect of the law of liability.

  • Negligence is "the failure to use ordinary care" through either an act or omission. That is, negligence occurs when:
  • Somebody does not exercise the amount of care that a reasonably careful person would use under the circumstances; or
  • Somebody does something that a reasonably careful person would not do under the circumstances.
  • In the criminal law, criminal negligence is one of the three general classes of mens rea element required to constitute a conventional as opposed to strict liability offence. It is defined as: careless,
  • Inattentive, neglectful, willfully blind, or in the case of gross negligence what would have been reckless in any other defendant.


Negligence is often claimed in personal injury lawsuits. For example, a personal injury lawsuit arising out of an auto accident case or premises liability action is frequently based on the theory that the defendant was negligent. Negligence lawsuit varies between jurisdictions, sometimes significantly, and you should check with a local legal professional if you wish to know the specific negligence laws of your jurisdiction.
