What’s the difference between negligence and recklessness?

A person may be sued on different grounds depending on the acts they committed which caused the claimant’s injury. If a person owed the claimant some sort of duty, such as driving safely or properly maintaining their property, and failed to perform that duty, the resulting injury claim may be pursued on the grounds of negligence. On the other hand, recklessness occurs when someone knowingly or intentionally commits a dangerous, often illegal, act that results in a claimant’s injury.

If someone has injured you or a loved one because of actions they willingly took, they may be sued for financial compensation on the grounds of reckless behavior.
