Determining Negligence in Tempe Accidents
What happens if I'm harmed by another's negligence?
Unfortunately, there are times when the negligence may cause severe injury to you or your loved ones. In the most tragic of cases, even death may result. If either of these situations has occurred, you have the right to pursue a
personal injury claim against the offending party. This applied whether the injury was physical, emotional, or other, such as damage to your reputation or financial losses. Even if the action which harmed you is not considered a criminal act, the law protects you against such events. These cases are tried in civil court so that you may be compensated for the ill effects you have suffered. In some cases, the action is both a civil violation and a criminal offense, in which case the perpetrator can face action in both civil and criminal courts.
Damage caused by negligence is distinct from injury which was intentionally caused or for which a particular party hold strict liability per the law. In any of these circumstances, you may bring a lawsuit against the responsible party. Negligent acts consist of those in which someone fails to take reasonable precaution to prevent others from being adversely affected. This may be per specific dictates of the law concerning that particular circumstance or per what is considered acceptable social or moral behavior.
