Individuals who are professional are held to a higher standard than the public at large. They are held to a community standard imposed on similar professionals. If a professional fails to act in accordance with the appropriate community standard, they may be guilty of negligence.
Personal Injury & Wrongful Death
Personal injury law is rooted in the law of negligence. Negligence is the failure of a person or entity to use that degree of care as the community would otherwise expect. If the negligence or failure to use due care causes injury, then claims may be made for those damages or injuries.
