General Info – Negligence
Negligence can occur in a variety of circumstances. In auto accidents, the person who causes the accident can be considered negligent for failing to avoid causing the accident as a careful and prudent person would. This negligence is legal grounds for filing negligence claims.
Professional negligence is another ground on which negligence claims can be filed. Medical negligence, also called medical malpractice, occurs when a hospital, doctor, nursing home professional, or other medical professional fails to act with the degree of skill, care, and prudence a reasonable professional would act with under similar circumstances. When a medical professional’s negligence results in injury, illness, or death, the victims have the right to file negligence claims to seek compensation for their losses and suffering.
Medical Negligence Claims
Examples of medical negligence include, but are not limited to, failure to diagnose, failure to treat, and failure to provide quality care. Negligence claims can also be filed in cases of prescription error, surgical error, anesthesia mistakes, and more. If death was the result of medical negligence, the decedent’s loved ones may be eligible to file a negligence claim.
Legal professionals and other business professionals or organizations, who may fail to fulfill their obligations to a client, may also be sued for damages through negligence claims.
Defective Drugs Negligence Claims
Pharmaceutical companies that negligently manufacture and market defective drugs may also be the subject of negligence claims. This area of law, called product liability, is applied to all consumer products that cause harm to their users or operators. Product manufacturers have a duty to ensure that their products are reasonably safe for their intended use. Should they fail to do so, and consumer injury results, they can be held liable in negligence claims.
There are other situations in which one party’s negligence causes harm to another person, thus, establishing viable grounds for negligence claims. To learn more about your ability to file a claim, you may wish to take advantage of our law firm’s free legal consultation.
