Did you know? There are many instances where negligence can occur, but we are here to represent you regardless of what causes it to occur.
“Negligence” is an action or failure to act by a defendant who owes a duty of care to a plaintiff. A person’s duty of care depends on the relationship between the individuals involved. But under this definition, a “relationship” can exist between two people who don’t even know each other.
Here are examples of different types of individuals and their duty of care:
1] Child care provider Has a duty to keep children safe and healthy in their care.
2] Store owner Has a duty to keep premises clean and in good condition so that there are no tripping hazards or other dangerous situations that could cause injury to shoppers.
3] Employer Has a duty to provide a safe and hazard-free work environment for all employees.
4] Jogger Has a duty to other pedestrians and drivers to pay reasonable attention to where they’re going and to avoid collisions.
5] Doctor Has a duty to patients to use a reasonably accepted standard of care to diagnose and treat illnesses.
6] Product manufacturer Has a duty to sell products that are free from defects that would cause injury to users.
7] Driver Has a duty to take reasonable care while on the road. That means being mindful of other traffic and pedestrians who share the road, and taking precautions to prevent crashes.
