Elements of a Negligence Tort
Extreme negligence is likely to cause severe injuries. For example, a bus driver who fails to follow the rules of the road puts passengers at risk of serious harm. Similarly, an owner of a bar who fails to clean up ice on the floor may cause patrons to suffer broken bones or back injuries. In legal terms, this type of negligence is known as a tort. The party responsible for the injury may be held financially responsible for the consequences.

Compensation in Personal Injury Lawsuits
Injuries caused by negligence can be costly to treat. In addition, time away from work can put a serious strain on a family’s finances. Fortunately, compensation may be available to help cover the medical bills and lost wages associated with these injuries.
Mental and emotional injuries are also considered when determining a fair amount of compensation for victims. The emotional toll a traumatic incident can cause may result in years of mental health counseling or other forms of therapy. A personal injury lawsuit can help address the costs associated with these treatments.
