In medical malpractice claims, auto accident injury claims, slip and fall accident claims, and any other type of personal injury claim in Rockville, your personal injury lawyer will have to prove that the plaintiff is guilty of negligence per se. Negligence per se is a legal term that means that if the plaintiff violated a law or regulation, and that violation resulted in injury or death, then the plaintiff was negligent.
