Defending Against Negligence Claims

Defending yourself against a negligence claim requires the skilled legal assistance of an experienced attorney. To succeed in this endeavor, you must negate the plaintiff’s cause of action by proving you did not owe a duty of care. The three most common doctrines in such cases are comparative fault, contributory negligence, and assumption of risk.

  • Comparative negligence: There are varying degrees of comparative negligence, such as pure or modified. It essentially reduces a plaintiff’s recovery by the amount he or she is responsible for the damages sustained.
  • Assumption of risk: In cases where a plaintiff assumes the risk involved in a dangerous activity and proceeds to partake in it, he or she may not successfully recover damages for injuries sustained. If the plaintiff sustained injuries due to unknown dangers, this doctrine would not apply.
  • Contributory negligence: When a plaintiff’s negligent actions resulted in the injuries he or she suffered, this is known as contributory negligence and it is one of the most common liability defenses. You must prove that the injuries could have been avoided if the plaintiff did not behave so negligently.

If you do not owe a duty of care to the plaintiff or the plaintiff acted negligently, resulting in an accident that might have otherwise been avoided, you should not have to pay the price for it. Hire the knowledgeable and aggressive legal representation you need to protect yourself against these claims.

Common Mistakes Businesses Make in Negligence Claims and Lawsuits

One of the most critical mistakes businesses often make when facing negligence claims is underestimating the complexity of these cases. Many companies attempt to handle claims internally without recognizing the nuances of personal injury defense, resulting in missteps that can significantly impact the outcome. Failing to promptly secure a liability defense attorney, not preserving all relevant evidence, and communicating ineffectively with the claimant or their legal representation are additional errors that can compromise a business's position. Furthermore, businesses sometimes acknowledge liability prematurely or overlook important legal defenses that could mitigate or nullify the claim altogether.

A seasoned liability defense attorney is instrumental in steering your company clear of these common pitfalls. By entrusting your case to a professional who are experienced in personal injury defense, your business benefits from expert legal strategy and guidance from the outset. An attorney not only ensures that all evidence is meticulously gathered and preserved but also manages communications with the opposing party strategically to safeguard your interests. Additionally, they are adept at identifying and employing relevant legal doctrines that could significantly reduce your liability or even dismiss the claim. Engaging a liability defense attorney early in the process provides your business with the robust defense it necessitates to handle negligence claims and lawsuits efficiently and effectively, safeguarding your company's future.
