Negligence is defined as the failure to act reasonably under the circumstances. Here are some examples of negligence:

  • Auto negligence lawsuit – A driver fails to stop at a stop sign. They strike an oncoming vehicle that has the right of way. The victim suffers multiple broken bones and requires surgery. Their car is totaled.
  • Hotel negligence lawsuit – When a hotel fails to wash bed sheets in hot water properly, several guests develop scabies. The victims require significant medical treatment, and they suffer physically and emotionally.
  • Slip and fall accident – A gas station fails to properly wipe a spill off the floor in a reasonable period of time. A patron slips and falls and suffers a concussion.
  • Broken railing accident – A person uses a handrail to walk down a flight of stairs at the mall. The handrail is broken. It cracks. The shopper falls to the floor and suffers a broken wrist.
  • Falling from an elevated surface – A person rents an apartment. They have a balcony, but the railing on the balcony isn’t built to code. As a result, the person leans on the balcony railing, falls from the second story and suffers severe injuries.
  • Chemical exposure – There is an industrial plant down the street. The plant releases wastewater into a local stream despite environmental regulations that forbid it. A number of local residents suffer from a rash and irritation because of chemicals in the water.
  • Restaurant negligence – A restaurant fails to properly wash its produce. As a result, many patrons get food poisoning. Some of them require hospitalization.
  • Bar or nightclub negligence – Bar or nightclub managers let too many people into a facility at once. As a result, the crowd jostles into each other. A man falls and breaks his leg.

A negligence claim is a lawsuit for financial compensation. A person who is hurt because of the negligence of another person may deserve a monetary payment for compensatory damages. The negligence claim is the legal process of demanding compensation. The case depends on the injuries and property damage that the victim sustains. The victim may claim financial losses, as well as compensation for the pain and suffering that typically accompanies physical injuries.
