How Does the Law Define Negligence?
Negligence is a legal term referring to the failure to act the way a reasonable person would act to prevent injury or physical damages. Proving negligence lies at the core of most personal injury cases. New York courts operate based on pure comparative negligence, which means assigning all parties a percentage of negligence. Courts award compensation based on each party’s percentage of fault. When your own actions contribute to your injury, the court reduces your recovery in proportion to your negligent actions. The case becomes a battle between opposing lawyers vying to prove the other side’s negligence or their own side’s lack of negligence. In serious injury cases, the attorney’s ability to gather vital evidence and mastery at presenting a convincing case can often lead to substantial recovery. Even so, most injury cases settle outside of court. Consequently, concerns about going to trial are typically limited and your attorney’s skills at the negotiating table take priority.
