GENERAL NEGLIGENCE
People can be seriously injured in many ways other than motor vehicle accidents, slip/trip & falls, malpractice, dog bites, boats and product/machine injuries. We have a larger population and a much more complex society than existed years ago. People go about their lives at a more hectic pace. Consequently, there is a much greater potential for harm if a person or company acts irresponsibly, without consideration for the rights of others to enjoy life without fear of injury.

In many situations, the law of our state imposes a duty upon people to use ordinary care for the safety of others while going about their daily tasks. If a person fails to use ordinary care, and harms another person, the law will frequently recognize such behavior as negligence and require the negligent person to be accountable by paying compensation to the victim. It is only by having a system of accountability that society can function properly.

If you have been hurt because of some person's irresponsible conduct, it is important to talk with an attorney to have the circumstances of your injury evaluated, and to have a determination made as to whether the law will require the negligent person to be held responsible. Do not try to make this decision on your own. Frequently, injury victims believe there is nothing that can be done. Properly qualified attorneys have years of schooling and are licensed to make these determinations. Attorneys at the law firm of Sarvis & Herrmann, P.C. have many years of experience, in addition to their legal education, to help in deciding whether you have a worthwhile claim.
