What is negligence?

Negligence is a legal term that is used to describe an act of failing to use reasonable caution. When a person acts without care and creates a dangerous condition that leads to an accident, he or she may be held liable for any injuries or damages that result. Negligence is one of the key components of a personal injury case that must be proven in order to argue liability. If the negligent individual can be shown to be liable for the harm caused, he or she may be ordered to pay compensation to the victims for their accident-related costs.
