Negligence Law Firm in Phoenix

Negligence can arise in many different injury cases. It is the failure to exercise care that leads to injury or death. Negligence is determined by a few factors:

  • whether there was a duty owed;
  • whether that duty was breached; and
  • if so, what consequences ensued.

A plaintiff need not show direct evidence to establish liability for injury caused by negligence because “negligence suffices as an indirect cause when it contributes materially and substantially to making another person’s wrongful act effective.

cases against negligent acts

Usually, there are three types of damages sought in cases involving negligent acts: economic loss (e.g., pain and suffering); physical impairment (e.g., lost wages due to disability); emotional distress (e.g., posttraumatic stress disorder).

According to the National Center on Elder Abuse, Ombudsman programs received over 188,000 complaints concerning exploitation, gross neglect, or abuse in nursing homes across the country in 2014.
