Negligence in Hartford, Connecticut

Definition from a Hartford Injury Lawyer

When a person acts without thinking ahead and considering the consequences of their action, and a person is injured or killed as a result of said action, the person who caused the accident is guilty of criminal negligence. One of the most common cases of criminal negligence is a form of medical malpractice, when a doctor or other medical professional acts or prescribes treatment without considering how it could adversely affect the patient's health. Anyone who suffers injury at the hands of a negligent person may be able to demand compensation from the liable party. To do so, you can speak with an injury attorney in Hartford about the legalities involved in your injury, and whether or not your accident was caused by negligence.

Injured by the negligence of another?

One of the key factors in recovering compensation for your injuries is proving that the other party failed to take reasonable care to avoid causing you injury.

There are four steps involved with proving negligence:

  • You must prove there is a duty in the circumstances to take care (duty of care)
  • You must prove the behavior or inaction of the defendant in the circumstances did not meet the standard of care of a reasonable person (breach of duty)
  • You must prove the plaintiff suffered injury or loss which a reasonable person in those circumstances could have been expected to foresee (damage)
  • You must prove the damage was caused by the breach of duty (causation)
