Negligence is the inability to act with the level of care that someone who is prudent would have applied in the same circumstance. To determine if a person acts with reckless care the following three things to take into consideration: the likelihood of that conduct causing injury; the extent of the injury and the expense of taking steps to reduce or eliminate any harm. These are some of the considerations Cornell Law School says. There are four elements that must be present to establish an initial case of negligence. First, the plaintiff has to establish that there was any legal obligation on the defendant. Following is the breach by the defendant of that obligation. Plaintiffs must prove that he suffered some kind of injury. In addition, you must prove that the breach by the defendant led to the harm (typically determined by proximate cause). Typically, if the defendant had a duty to be a good citizen, however, he did not (resulting in a breach), and that breach led to injury, and the action of the defendant is deemed to be negligent, it will be classed as non-compliance. x9ko1rdgzn.
