What are the Types of Negligence in Personal Injury Cases?
There are many examples of negligence in various types of cases. For example, violating a traffic signal; drunk driving; failure to operate a vehicle safely, and many others. All of these acts of negligence fall under negligence categories, with the top types of negligence involved in personal injury cases being:
- Gross negligence – extreme carelessness or inattention that results in injury to another person
- Comparative negligence – the level of fault that every party has in the accident determines the number of damages that the person can recover
- Contributory negligence – if the injured party contributed in any way to their injuries caused in the accident, the number of damages that they are elgible to recover could be reduced or revoked
- Vicarious liability – if an employee injures someone as the result of neglience while on the job, the person’s employer is vicariously liable and can be sued by the victim for damages
It’s essential to remember that negligence statutes are different in every state. Missouri and Illinois utilize Comparative Negligence, but it can be challenging to determine how this applies to your case. An experienced attorney can analyze your situation, decide if you have a claim, and provide an outlook of the types of compensation that you could be eligible to recover.
