In a personal injury matter, there typically are two types of damages; special damages, i.e., economic damages such as medical bills, loss of earnings, property damage and general damages, which are non-economic and are typically known as pain and suffering damages.
Negligence for purposes of legal claims is typically when someone or some entity breaches a duty they owe to you as a consumer, i.e., an automobile accident, a fall at a grocery store or food poisoning at a restaurant.
In order to sustain a valid legal claim for negligence, there must be an injury or damages and someone must have committed a negligent act. This can be a positive act such as being rear-ended or an act of omission such as a grocery store failing to inspect and clean its floors.
