In a personal injury case, proving negligence amounts to legally placing the blame for the personal injury on the defendant who caused the damage. An example of neglect would be a business who failed to mark a wet floor with a “Wet Floor” sign.
All personal injuries resulting from this inaction would be deemed as negligent, and the injured party would be entitled to compensation.
