Is there any other basis for personal injury liability besides negligence?
Negligence is an action or a failure to act that results in injury to another.
It means that someone 1) did something they should not have done or 2) failed to do something they should have done.
Everyone is judged on a “reasonable person” standard.
Question: Would a reasonable person in the shoes of the accused wrongdoer have done it that way?
In order then to be actionable, harm and damage must occur.
If a wrongful act, but no harm, not a case; if no wrongful act but harm results, not a legal case.
I cannot fathom where a person’s “non-negligence” or “no-fault” could ever be actionable.
If they didn’t do anything wrong, or you cannot prove it, the law says you cannot recover for it.
Remember, personal injury law can be very complex. Make sure you have the right law firm working for you. Having the right law firm will make all the difference in your case.
