Negligence Per Se

One of the core issues involved in many personal injury cases is whether one or more parties that contributed to the accident may be found to have acted or behaved in a negligent manner. Determining whether negligence played a significant role in the accident can be very difficult as the case becomes cluttered with statements that are contradictory. This is why it is important for you to work closely with a skilled and experienced attorney to help ensure that your interests are adequately represented and that a proper investigation may be conducted into the various factors.

Proving negligence per se can be one of the keys to a successful case.

What Constitutes Negligence Per Se?

The term, negligence per se is used in connection with a particular kind of negligence that is often at play in matters that are brought before the civil court system in the United States. Negligence per se is deemed to be present when a party in the dispute has violated a legal statute or regulation. In such cases, the following must be demonstrated:

  • The defendant in the case violated a specific statute
  • The statute is in place to ensure safety
  • The defendant’s action had the effect of resulting in the harm that the statue was intended to prevent
  • The plaintiff was in a position to be harmed by that failure
