Various Types of Negligence Cause Devastating Injuries

Negligence refers to many types of situations. It is helpful to know what type of negligence applies to your particular situation. Each type of negligence involves various factors and the burden of proof for each varies.

GROSS NEGLIGENCE: The negligence exhibited was so careless that a complete lack of concern for the safety and well being of others was readily apparent. This serious form of negligence exceeds simple carelessness.
COMPARATIVE NEGLIGENCE: The injured party is only partially or marginally responsible for the injuries incurred. In this type of case, the injured party may be held partially responsible for paying the costs of injuries, damages, medical expenses, etc.
CONTRIBUTORY NEGLIGENCE: The injured party was somehow responsible for causing his own injury in some manner and cannot collect damages.
MIXED CONTRIBUTORY & COMPARATIVE NEGLIGENCE: If the injured party is found to be more than 50% responsible for causing his own injury, he may receive a portion or percentage of damages (or none at all).
VICARIOUS LIABILITY: The at-fault party is responsible for the actions of another person or animal. Vicarious liability typically applies to cases where dogs or young children cause serious injury to another person. The parent or owner of the animal is held liable because the child (under the age of seven) or animal is incapable of committing negligence. In some cases, employers can be held to be responsible for vicarious liability for failing to oversee the actions of their employees.
