What does negligence mean?


Negligence is failing to do what an ordinary company, in the case of corporate defendants, or an individual, in the case of individual defendants, would have done under the same circumstances.

In a 18 Wheeler Accident, for example, the standard for evaluating negligence would be “what an ordinary and prudent commercial truck driver and trucking company would have done under the same or similar circumstances?

When someone acts dangerously or unsafely—and therefore unreasonably—they are said to be negligent.
