A negligence claim is a legal action for compensation based on an injury. A victim brings the case to demand monetary compensation. The person or entity responsible for the accident pays the victim an amount based on the law.
The purpose of a negligence lawsuit is to provide financial compensation to the victim and hold wrongdoers accountable for their actions. Of course, money alone cannot heal injuries. However, it can reimburse the victim for their losses, ease their suffering and provide justice.
There are several claims that involve negligence, including auto negligence lawsuits and hotel negligence lawsuits. Common types of negligence claims are:
In order to receive compensation for negligence, the victim must initiate their own lawsuit. A crime doesn’t have to occur for a victim to have a claim. Instead, the legal basis for a negligence claim is a civil wrong.
Under Florida law, the person who causes an accident through negligence or carelessness legally bears the burden of the harm that results. Bringing a negligence claim is the way for victims to get the compensation they deserve. They may also receive a determination of fault by the responsible party.

Remember that a negligence claim can be based on an accident. Intentional harm is not required. In fact, negligence claims are just that – accidents. They often occur because someone acts with unreasonable carelessness. The victim only needs to show how the responsible party failed to act reasonably with care and caution.
