GENERAL NEGLIGENCE / INSURANCE

Negligence comes in many forms and refers to the absence of, or failure to exercise, proper or ordinary care.  A negligent individual has a duty to compensate a victim for his negligence, even though he did not intend harm, provided that the harm could have been reasonably foreseen.  For example, a drunk driver should anticipate that his car could severely injure or kill a driver or pedestrian lawfully on the road.  Likewise, a ferris wheel operator should understand that his failure to secure a safety bar could lead to serious injury.  Smith Elliott Smith & Garmey has successfully represented clients in general negligence cases involving everything from premises liability to motor vehicle accidents and has helped its clients earn seven figure verdicts and settlements.
