Negligence

 

In the world of personal injury law, the majority of claims arise because someone has been injured due to the negligent action or inaction of someone else. With less legal jargon, you could say that a personal injury claim usually arises because someone is not doing what they are supposed to do and someone gets hurt as a result. This is negligence. It happens every day and can lead to catastrophic injuries that forever change a person’s life. At Fazli & Associates, we fight for the injured. We fight for them to get their lives back on track after an accident has turned everything upside down.

 

 

How Do You Prove Negligence?

 

In order to prove that someone else was negligent, legally speaking, there are certain elements that need to be supported. For starters, duty must be proven. A plaintiff bringing a personal injury action based on negligence must be able to show that the defendant owed him or her a legal duty. For instance, all motor vehicle drivers on the road owe each other a duty of care. This duty includes things like following the laws of the road.

 

A plaintiff must also prove that the defendant breached this legal duty. An example of breaching a legal duty would be something like a driver violating the duty of care owed to other drivers of the road by failing to stop at a red light. After the breach of duty has been shown, the plaintiff must also show that the breach caused the harm suffered by the plaintiff. A plaintiff must be able to show that he or she incurred actual damages that were directly caused by the breach of the duty the defendant owed the plaintiff. Damages may include things like:

 

  • Medical bills

  • Lost income

  • Loss of future earning capacity

  • Property damage

  • Pain and suffering

 

Negligent activities by a defendant can lead to a wide range of personal injury claims, including:

 

  • Car accidents

  • Truck accidents

  • Motorcycle accidents

  • Drunk driving accidents

  • Slip and falls

  • Dog bites

  • Product liability

  • Premises liability

  • Dog bites

  • Negligent security

 

What is a Negligent Security Claim?

 

The negligent activities of another can cause a wide range of harm to unsuspecting victims. When another person is negligent, people get hurt. Negligence can come in many forms. For instance, when a property owner or manager is negligent in taking proper security measures and someone suffers harm as a result, this is a type of negligent activity.

 

Negligent security claims fall under the premises liability category of personal injury claims. It is a form of civil redress for victims of criminal acts. In a negligent security claim, the injured party seeks to hold an owner or possessor of property liable for injuries caused by a criminal act on he property. The injury may have been caused by such crimes as a robbery, assault, or battery. The injured party is able to bring a claim seeking compensation for the damages he or she has sustained based on the fact that a landowner or possessor of property has a duty to lawful visitors to protect them by taking reasonable measures to prevent foreseeable crimes from occurring on the property.

 

To bring a negligent security claim, the plaintiff will need to prove that the landowner was negligent because he or she failed to exercise reasonable care in preventing the crime from occurring through the implementation of appropriate security measures. It is important to note that the property owner owes this legal duty of care to those visitors who are lawfully present on the property. Those lawfully present on the property deserve reasonable security measures in place to prevent being injured by foreseeable crimes that may occur on the premises. Fazli & Associates holds property owners accountable when they fail to properly protect property visitors. The harm that can occur with this kind of negligence can be devastating and traumatic. We are here to fight for the person who has been victimized by criminal activity that could have been prevented had appropriate security measures been in place.
