What does Negligence Per se mean?

Negligence per se is negligence which is considered inherently negligent and does not require the plaintiff in a personal injury claim to prove the defendant should have known the action would injure or that they intended to injure the victim. Negligence per se can also occur if a defendant fails to do something. For instance, when a surgeon fails to take a sponge out of a patient's body this is considered negligence per se, which means it is inherently negligent.
