A Personal Injury Lawyer Defines Negligence

We asked attorney Samantha Cahill to briefly explain the legal concept of negligence. She described it as, “When someone acts carelessly and it negatively impacts another. For example, if you are texting and driving and rear-end the car in front of you, you were negligent for not paying attention while you were driving.”

Unfortunately, when someone fails to exercise due care, others may suffer injuries. Whether it be in a car accident, falling at a poorly maintained property, or a medical professional not living up to the standard of care.
