    What is Negligence?

    Negligence is described as the failure of a person or organization to exercise the same level of care that someone else would under similar circumstances. In the legal field, general negligence is usually determined by whether or not a sensible individual or company would have allowed the same situation to exist that resulted in your injury.

    Negligent behavior is typically made up of actions, although it may also be composed of omissions when there is a clear duty to act in a certain way under the circumstances.

    Medical Malpractice

    Medical malpractice happens when doctors or medical professionals who work in hospitals or other healthcare facilities cause injury to patients like you because of negligence. The negligent act or omission in a healthcare setting may lead to critical mistakes in your treatment or diagnosis. Medical malpractice is characterized by three factors:

    • Failure to meet the accepted standard of care in the healthcare industry
    • The negligence of the physician or medical staff directly resulted in the injury or death of the patient
    • The injury or death of the patient led to major damages in terms of medical expenses, extreme pain, disability, loss of income, etc.

    Premises Liability

    Premises liability cases occur when you are injured in a venue where the property owner did not make a reasonable effort to keep the vicinity safe for visitors. The property owner may be held accountable for the damages caused by your personal injury. Here are some examples of circumstances that could lead to premises liability lawsuits:

    • Slip and fall accidents
    • Dog bites and other animal bites
    • Swimming pool injuries
    • Insufficient security
    • Poor maintenance

    Daycare Negligence

    Daycare negligence refers to the failure of the school or daycare team to meet the proper standard of care in the daycare industry. It happens when the action or omission of the head or employee of the daycare puts your child at risk. You could file a daycare negligence lawsuit if daycare negligence causes your child to be hurt or injured while he or she is under the care of the school or daycare staff.

    When Should I Contact a Negligence Attorney?

    You should contact a medical malpractice lawyer, premises liability attorney, or daycare injury attorney if you believe that you are the victim of the negligence of a doctor, healthcare professional, property owner, or daycare staff. You may pursue a claim with the assistance of a negligence attorney if these four factors are present in your case:

    • The person or company owes a legal duty to you or your loved ones
    • The other part breached the legal duty through negligence
    • The breach of duty by the individual or organization caused you to become injured
    • There is proof that the other party’s breach of duty resulted in your injury

    To be realistic, determining if your case qualifies as negligence or not can be challenging on your own, especially if you don’t have a legal background. At Olawale Law firm, we offer free consultations to help you make these decisions if you suspect negligence.
