PERSONAL INJURY THEORY OF NEGLIGENCE

Although deliberate wrongdoing is found to be the cause of some personal injuries, most of the time monetary recovery in a personal injury suit results from a finding that one or more involved parties has acted negligently. In order to be held liable for negligence, someone must owe a duty of care to another and must take action—or fail to take reasonable action— that results in an injury. A classic example is a store owner failing to clean up liquid spilled in the aisle, causing a customer to slip and sustain injuries.
