General Negligence Attorneys in Landover

Holding Negligent Parties Accountable

Negligence may have a simple dictionary definition, but in the context of the law, it can become extremely complicated. U.S. law holds all of us accountable for responsible behavior and obliges us to conduct all activities in a reasonable manner that does not harm others. Should you fail to meet these obligations, you could be considered negligent. If your negligence causes another person harm, you could face legal action.

At Ashcraft & Gerel, our general negligence attorneys in Landover are committed to holding negligent people accountable for their actions or lack thereof. If you have suffered an injury because of someone else’s action or inaction, we want to help you pursue the compensation you are entitled to under the law.

The Complexities of Negligence Claims

We all know that certain types of negligent behavior can quickly lead to legal action. For example, driving drunk – an instance of severe negligence – can leave a person facing serious legal consequences.

However, every instance of negligence leaves space for nuance, interpretation, and extenuating circumstances that can affect how the law regards that negligence.

For example, say a building collapses and leaves an innocent person suffering an injury. You might think that the construction company who made the building is liable for failing to construct it safely. However, it is possible that the construction company’s supplier is liable for providing faulty materials. It is also possible that the building’s owner is liable for failing to keep up with the necessary maintenance to ensure the building’s safety.

As another example, say a person suffers a dangerous side effect after taking a prescription drug. Is the manufacturer liable for failing to properly test the drug? Is the person’s doctor liable for inappropriately prescribing the drug? Or maybe the person’s pharmacist is liable for giving the wrong dose.

Most instances of negligence are not cut and dried – which means it can be tough to litigate a negligence claim. At Ashcraft & Gerel, however, we have vast experience pursuing claims against negligent parties. We are skilled at thoroughly investigating incidents of negligence and determining which party or parties should be held liable.
