What Is Negligence Per Se?
When someone wrongfully injures you, you can pursue legal action to get compensated for the losses they’ve caused. Physical injuries and their toll can be life-changing, but being hurt isn’t enough to guarantee a successful outcome. In a personal injury lawsuit, you must prove negligence on behalf of the defendant, or the person being sued.
Under common law, negligence is defined as a breach of duty that caused harm. The plaintiff first has to prove that the defendant owed a duty of care, that the defendant breached this duty, and that their breach caused the plaintiff’s injuries. In short, to prove common law negligence, a plaintiff has to prove that a defendant did not act as a reasonable person would have.
There’s also another way of proving negligence, and that is negligence per se. Negligence per se, which is latin for negligence in itself, is a type of action when a defendant violates a safety regulation, law, or ordinance designed to protect people.
