Negligence

Negligence occurs when a business or person fails to take reasonable care to prevent foreseeable harm to another.  Common examples include industrial accidents, construction-site accidents and medical malpractice.  Our attorneys have successfully defended individuals and businesses against a variety of negligence claims.  Most recently, we were awarded summary judgment on behalf of a client that was sued for negligent installation of an underground natural gas pipeline after the pipeline exploded and caused damage to bystanders and nearby buildings.
