In the state of Wisconsin, it is presumed that everyone takes precautions and ordinary care when going about daily activities. When a person is harmed because of another’s negligence or when they are harmed even if the other did not intend to cause harm, they may have grounds for a general negligence case.
In order to recover damages, a plaintiff must prove both that the defendant was negligent and that his or her negligence caused the plaintiff’s injuries and damages.
Some examples of general negligence include:
- Collapse of building due to negligent construction
- Negligent inspection of vehicle by mechanic, resulting in mechanical failure
- Negligent supervision
- Negligent hiring
- Negligent failure to secure livestock, resulting in animals getting loose on highway
- Inadequate security
