If you’ve been injured in South Florida as a result of someone else’s negligent behavior, the person or entity that caused your personal injuries is essentially liable for those injuries.
Although persons who act negligently may not have purposefully intended to cause harm, their liability results from their careless or thoughtless actions – such actions viewed in comparison to the assumption of how a reasonable person would act if faced with the same or a similar set of circumstances. In order to render a fair verdict, once all evidence has been presented in an injury by negligence trial, either the judge or the jury decides how a reasonable person would have acted in that comparable incident, and how that hypothetical person’s behavior measures against the actions of the allegedly negligent individual.
In the case of injuries suffered due to the negligence of individuals with specialized training or knowledge (such as physicians, pilots or engineers, for example), their reasonable standards of conduct are thus compared to how persons in the same fields or professions would normally act if faced with the same or similar set of circumstances. Cases of this type are considered malpractice cases, and are covered by a special area of the law.
