A “duty of care” is a legal obligation pertaining to a person, corporation, or entity that ensures the safety of others. If you are seeking compensation through a personal injury claim, it’s important that you can prove the other party owed you a duty of care.
Duty of Care
A duty of care can apply to many different instances, including defective products, medical errors, car accidents, and more. In the event of a defective products case, manufacturers and sellers have a duty of care to ensure their products are safe for the intended use. In regards to medical errors, health care providers are legally obligated to adhere to the standard to care when treating each patient. Pertaining to car accidents, motorists and commercial truck drivers must operate their vehicles safely to avoid collisions or accidents.
When one party’s failure to act sensibly results in the victim’s injury or death, this is known as a breach of the duty of care. If you believe that you were a victim of a duty of care breach, you need to prove that the accused party was at fault. The experienced lawyers at Cardaro and Peek can help you examine your case.
To prove causation for your breach of duty case, you must show that the actions of the at-fault party caused the accident that resulted in your injury or loved one’s death. Once the causation is established, you must then prove that you or the loved one has suffered measurable damages, including the cost of medical treatment or lost wages.
Regardless of your specific situation, it helps to contact an attorney to discuss your case and determine if the at-fault party breached its duty of care in causing your injury or loved one’s death. Reach out to the lawyers at Cardaro and Peek today.
