What is Negligence?

Negligence is legally defined as the failure to use “reasonable care” when engaging in any sort of activity. It may also be described as carelessness or lack of expected capability (as in the case of a doctor treating a patient without the expected level of competence). Negligence often will result in harm done to another individual, and it is considered to be one of the main causes of personal injury.
