Negligence and Wrongful Death
Negligence is the lack of ordinary care and a failure to use the degree of care that a reasonable person would have used under the same circumstances.
Negligence arises from a breach of that legal duty to act reasonable. For example, a motorist owes a duty of care to other motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists and motorcyclists. The failure to use due care is a breach of the legal duty of care.
