What Is Negligent Misrpresentation?

Misrepresentation in general is a legal term that means "a false statement of fact that has the effect of inducing someone into a contract." For example, telling someone a stereo is "practically new" so that they buy it, when it is in fact 5 years old and heavily used.

Negligent misrepresentation occurs when the defendant carelessly makes a representation while having no reasonable basis to believe it to be true.
