Negligence is at the heart of many personal injury lawsuits, but what does the term really mean? Take a look at this video for a concise legal definition of negligence.
At its core, negligence is a failure to act in a way deemed appropriate to prevent reasonable harm. Negligence relies on the idea of the “reasonable man” and how he would hypothetically conduct himself in order to protect others; acting in a way that does not comply with this standard may qualify as negligence.
