Mistakes and accidents happen. But what at first glance seems like a mistake or an accident often turns out to be the result of a consistent pattern of cutting corners to reduce costs, ignoring safety regulations or misusing equipment. Negligence is defined as an action that falls below the typical standards of behavior and may include anything from drunk driving to improper diagnosis by a healthcare official. Negligence is the failure of a person to act the way a reasonable person might under similar circumstances. All people have a duty to exercise reasonable care to ensure another’s physical safety, and it is the duty of the law to enforce that right.
