Milwaukee-personal-injury-information.pngMilwaukee Personal Injury Lawyers

The most common liability cases our personal injury lawyers in Milwaukee, Waukesha and Mequon work on involve vehicle accidents, such as auto accidents, truck accidents, or motorcycle accidents. The second most common type involve slip falls or trip and falls. A close third would be bicycle accidents or pedestrian accidents, or something that involves transportation but no motorized vehicle.

There are a wide variety of cases that do not neatly fit into any specific category. We refer to liability cases as ordinary negligence cases.

Negligence and "Ordinary Care"

Generally, every person has a responsibility to act with “ordinary care.” Ordinary care is defined as the care which a reasonable person would use in similar circumstances. If a person is not using ordinary care, that person is considered negligent. Another way of stating this “ordinary care” test is that if a person, without intending to do any harm, does something or fails to do something that a reasonable person would recognize as creating an unreasonable risk of injury or danger to another.

If that failure to exercise ordinary care causes injury

to someone else, the person who failed to use reasonable

care can be held liable for damages.
