Negligence

  1. Introduction

    A claim of negligence may be useful in cases involving a third party who owed a duty of care to the victim, such as an employer or a school. For example, if the nonconsensually published intimate images were posted from a school or employer’s computer, the suit may include a negligence claim against the school or employer.

  2. Elements of a Claim

    “To prevail on a negligence claim, a plaintiff must establish four elements: (1) the existence of a duty of care, (2) breach of that duty, (3) legal causation, and (4) damages.”1

  3. Cases

    Research is ongoing.
