Negligence is a very interesting constuct in the legal profession. It may impose a duty whether known or not on parties involved a given set of circumstances upon which liability may or may not attach depending upon whether the duty was breached and to what degree and how proximate the breach was to the injury. That is a rough approximation of a potential definition of negligence. What is interesting is how we tend to believe cases involving negligence are so simple. The facts are so obvious. This is usually not the case at all. If you are involved in accident in Jupiter, Stuart, Port St. Lucie, or Fort Pierce, and need to speak with an attorney, please give my office a call and we will schedule a free consultation.
