Are You A Victim Of General Negligence?

General Negligence

Negligence is the failure to use reasonable care. Negligence can be the result of an action or an inaction. At Powell Law Group, we believe individuals living in society have a duty to act reasonably toward one another and not be careless, so as not to cause personal injury or property damage.  We've seen personal injuries and property damage from general negligence cause financial, emotional, psychological, and physical stress for the injured party and his or her family.  

In the event of a general negligent case, a judge or jury may decide whether the person breached their duty to act reasonably toward the injured party through proof that the defendant had a duty under the law to be careful.  The Powell Law Group is ready to help you gather the evidence that will be needed to connect the negligent action or inaction of the defendant to your injury and prove to the judge or jury that you need to be awarded compensation accordingly.
