Many incidents that cause wrongful death and serious personal injury can be traced back to a corporate negligence or recklessness that companies fail to prioritize for the safety of employees, visitors, customers and the general public.

Corporations must held to a high standard of accountability, because their failure to adhere to safety standards can result in serious injuries or death. The average American citizen comes into contact with a corporation every day. Every time you shop at a store, eat at a restaurant, or have a drink at the pub, you are entering a business property that should be, by law, kept safe for you and for other guests, customers, employees and visitors. The failure to make safety a priority inevitably leads to injuries or worse.

A customer who is shopping in a supermarket, and is injured when he tries to reach out for a box on a higher shelf, does not expect to be injured in this manner. Such risk of injuries can be reduced through safe stocking practices. Similarly, there can be other incidents that occur on commercial properties like slip and falls, electrocutions or electrical shock accidents, rapes and assaults, crimes, as well as infectious diseases like Legionnaires Disease. In most of these cases, it is the responsibility of the owner of the property, the manager of the property, or any other entity involved in the upkeep of the property to ensure that all visitors are safe.

A company may be responsible not just for the physical upkeep and maintenance of the property in order to reduce the risk of injury hazards, but also to ensure the safety and security of the premises through the hiring and training of capable employees. Failure to conduct background checks before hiring employees could lead to undesirable elements ending up in the workforce, posing a possible danger to customers on the property.

Corporate negligence is also to blame for thousands of workplace accidents that take place in the United States every year. Failure to invest in the training of workers, failure to invest in personal protection gear, and failure to invest in safe machinery and tools – all of these can seriously increase a worker’s risk of being injured.

Elements of a Corporate Negligence Case

In a corporate negligence case, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant corporation had a legal duty to act with care towards the plaintiff and that the corporation breached that duty, resulting in harm to the plaintiff.

  • The plaintiff must prove that the business had a legal duty to act with care towards the plaintiff.
  • The plaintiff must show that the corporation breached this duty, either by acting recklessly, intentionally, or with gross negligence.
  • The plaintiff must establish causation, meaning that the corporation's actions or inactions were the direct cause of the plaintiff's harm.
  • The plaintiff must show that the corporation's breach of duty resulted in damages to the plaintiff, which may include economic and non-economic damages.
  • The specific elements of a corporate negligence case may vary depending on the laws of the jurisdiction and the specific facts of the case.
