Negligence

Carelessness, lack of diligence, omission of due care and attention in legal acts and in the management of assets. It is synonymous with recklessness.

There are two types of negligence:

  • Ordinary negligence: which occurs due to lack of experience or simple error and in an unintentional manner.
  • Gross negligence: which implies, in addition to the ordinary negligence, that the company has acted in an inconsiderate manner, without due respect for the stipulated rules.
