Defendant's Attorney: El Dorado, Arkansas insurance defense lawyer represented the Defendant.

Description: El Dorado, Arkansas personal injury lawyer represented the Plaintiff who sued the Defendant on an auto negligence theory.

Negligence, the legal theory behind most injury lawsuits, is the violation of a duty owed to another individual. In other words, to do something (or not do something) a "reasonable person" wouldn't (or would) do -- such as driving drunk or failing to ensure the safety of a consumer product -- is an act of negligence.

When an act of negligence causes injury to another person, then the negligent party is liable for those injuries and must pay damages to compensate the other person. For example, someone who drives drunk, crashes into another motorist, and causes injuries (including damage to the vehicle) would be considered negligent and liable for damages. The driver in this example was not acting like a reasonable person by driving under the influence.

Outcome: Settled for an undisclosed sum and dismissed with prejudice.
