Nature:

Negligence is a failure to give thought or to pay attention to the risks inherent in one's actions and to take the appropriate precautions against these risks. A negligent act may not result in harm but it, nevertheless, is an act of carelessness. Recklessness, involving the awareness of high risk, is contrasted with negligence in which there should have been awareness of the existence of such risk. Negligence refers to circumstances in which a reasonable person would have been aware of the risk.
