- The failure to use ordinary care toward another that a reasonably careful person would use under the circumstances existing. This is also referred to as an accident as opposed to an intentional act. In order to prove a claim for negligence, a plaintiff has the burden to prove that he or she was injured, that the defendant was negligent in one or more of the ways claimed by the injured person, and that the negligence of the defendant was a proximate cause of the injuries suffered by the plaintiff.
