Negligence actions happen every day in many, many places. Negligent conduct can happen in a wide variety of places such as:

  • Your workplace
  • Where you shop
  • On highways
  • In schools
  • At vacation resorts and hotels
  • In hospitals
  • At health care provider offices
  • At sports facilities
  • In parks
  • In government buildings
  • Even in your home

“Negligence” generally occurs when someone acts in a way that a person of ordinary thoughtfulness, caution or care would not act under the same or similar circumstances. In other words; someone is negligent when they fail to exercise the care of a reasonably prudent or ordinarily careful person would use under the particular circumstances. Negligence may also occur through failure to take action, which a person of ordinary prudence would have done under the same or similar circumstances. Negligence may result from someone’s acts or failure to act.

Many people don’t realize that what may initially appear to be a simple negligence action could present complex legal, medical, insurance, and scientific issues. The experienced attorneys at The Overchuck Law Firm are prepared to assist you in evaluating, organizing and prosecuting your potential negligence action to a successful conclusion.

Here is an example to help explain negligence;



In a motor vehicle crash, a driver may be negligent for driving too fast or driving on the wrong side of the road, which resulted in a crash. A driver may also be negligent for failing to act, such as not slowing down, not stopping, or not driving on the proper side of the road. Whether the conduct is described in terms of acts or failure to act, the conduct is evaluated under a standard of ordinary care.

It is also possible to be partially negligent. In most cases it is not necessary to prove all charges of negligence. A party can also be held liable even in partial negligence.

If you believe that someone has caused you harm due to their negligence, you will normally be required to prove that person had a duty to exercise the care of a reasonably prudent or ordinarily careful person under the particular circumstances, and failed to act accordingly. As your attorney we will also detail how you must also prove that the person or company’s inaction or carelessness caused your injury and related damages.
