Res Ipsa Loquitur

Res ipsa loquitur literally means “the thing speaks for itself.” Res ipsa loquitur refers to cases that demonstrate that there is negligence just by the fact the incident happened. For instance, if a sponge or rag from surgery is left inside of a patient, the doctor or hospital was negligent just by the fact that it happened. It does not take any additional evidence to show that this conduct was negligent.

Although cases based on res ipsa loquitur are strong cases, it still may take time to reach a settlement. Settlements in res ipsa loquitur cases are highly likely, but it is not as likely that the person who committed the negligence will be excited to pay for the negligence. The negligent party may try to put off paying for the negligence or even may try to avoid paying for the negligence at all.

Sometimes personal injury victims cannot afford to wait for the negligent party to take responsibility for the negligence. Sometimes they need money immediately.
