There are two types of Negligence that would warrant a lawsuit in California; one is where someone purposely does something that any person in the right frame of mind wouldn’t do, and the other is ignoring a situation or failing to take action that any reasonable person would take to prevent the injury of another person. Negligence cases are most often the result of a caretaker, attorney, or physician neglecting their duties to take care of a client or patient.
Parts in a Negligence Lawsuit
There are usually four things lawyers look at when determining if there is a case against neglect:
- Legal obligation, which is imposed on an individual requiring adherence to a standard of reasonable care while performing any acts that could foreseeably harm others. (Wikipedia Duty of Care)
- Any breach of that legal obligation / duty
- The actions of the individual causing harm
- Any damages resulting from neglect
