Negligence

Negligence is a type of tort under which a person whose property has been damaged or who has suffered injury through someone else’s careless action can claim damages (compensation) from him. To bring a claim, the injured person must show that:

The person who caused the injury had a responsibility towards him in law (he was owed a duty of care);

The person who caused the injury had acted in a negligent way (there was a breach of that duty of care) 

The injuries were a direct result of these negligent actions

Usually the claim is for physical injury to the person or damage to his property or for psychiatric injury, but occasionally a claim can be made for financial loss on its own (pure economic loss).
