Abstract

‘Negligence’ has two different meanings in the law of torts. Firstly, it refers to an attitude of mind in which most torts may be carried out. For example, an individual may commit trespass negligently, or may negligently defame another person. In this sense, ‘negligence’ means carelessness.
