Understanding Negligence

Amber is heaven sent!! Amber and her team worked very hard on my case!! They checked on me while I had my weekly doctor visits. They were very detailed with my settlement. I didn’t have to second guess anything. I would recommend her to anybody who is in a car accident !! I’ve even referred my love ones who also needed her to represent them in an accident. She made my process as painless as possible. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!

Jeannette A., Client

I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

Our Atlanta Accident Attorney
Explains Negligence in Personal Injury Cases

When it comes to personal injury cases, negligence is a word that comes up quite often.

Unfortunately, negligence is not an easy concept to understand, particularly for non-lawyers. In addition, proving negligence can be even more difficult. If you’ve been injured and believe that it’s someone else’s fault, an Atlanta accident attorney can help you understand your options.

Examples of Negligence in Georgia Personal Injury Cases

Negligence can occur in a wide range of cases. We’ve outlined some common examples that an Atlanta accident attorney can handle: 


Personal Injury Negligence FAQs

  What is the Difference Between Negligence and Intentional Harm? Read More

It may help understand the nature of negligence when compared to intentional harms. For example, someone who commits assault and battery intended to hurt the other person. In a negligence case, however, there was no specific intent to harm anyone, let alone a specific person. 

  What is the Difference Between Strict Liability and Negligence? Read More

In order to prevail on your negligence claim, you will have to prove that the other party was negligent. There are some cases, however, where all you have to prove is that the other party caused your harm – you do not need to prove that they were negligent or intended to harm you. These cases are referred to as “strict liability” cases. 

Strict liability applies in only two situations under Georgia law: 

Extremely hazardous activities such as working with explosives or extremely hazardous materials;
Product liability cases. 
Of the two, product liability cases are far more common. While you do not have to prove negligence in these situations, this does not mean that your case will be easier. We strongly recommend that you speak with an Atlanta accident attorney about your case before making any decisions.
