Accidents Caused by Negligence

The term "negligence" means there is a lack of reasonable care; so what is "reasonable?" In a personal injury case that goes to trial, the judge will look at your circumstances make a determination as to the criteria for reasonable care and the severity of your injury based on whether or not any other regular person would have been injured in the same way. For example, if you tripped over an object on the ground due to the fact that you didn't see it, then the elements that will be inspected may include the following: Did poor lighting contribute to your inability to see?, Was there reasonable notification or warning of the danger such as a caution sign?, Was there are legitimate reason for this object to be there?, and/or Was the object obstructing an obvious walkway?
