n. carelessness which is in reckless disregard for the safety or lives of others, and is so great it appears to be a conscious violation of other people's rights to safety. It is more than simple inadvertence, but it is just shy of being intentionally evil. If one has borrowed or contracted to take care of another's property, then gross negligence is the failure to actively take the care one would of his/her own property. If gross negligence is found by the trier of fact (judge or jury), it can result in the award of punitive damages on top of general and special damages.

    Escribo y me gusta escribir cuentos y relatos en español en mis tiempos libres. Por desgracia no me atrevo aún a escribir en francés; aunque en un futuro no muy lejano tal vez lo haga. Con este fin fue que me inscribí en este portal y, sobre todo, para enriquecer mi léxico, mi vocabulario, etc., auxiliándome, además, en la utilización de los diversos diccionarios y enciclopedias que se manejan en el sitio. Me interesa sobremanera el famoso y consabido Diccionario de María Moliner, que es el que más uso. Soy mexicano y vivo al sur de la ciudad de México, con una fuerte influencia y admiración hacia la cultura y civilización gala desde niño... ¡ Bienvenidos todos aquellos que amen el español y el francés tal como yo! ¡ Bienvenidos todos aquellos que gusten de las culturas y civilizaciones iberoamericanas y, sobre todo, que les plazca y que gusten de mi hermoso y maravilloso país!
