Our Duty Is To You, Our Client

Personal injury law is based on what is called “duty of care.” Duty of care means that a party (person, corporation, manufacturer, property owner, restaurant, retail store, etc.) has a legal obligation to avoid acting in a fashion that could reasonably be foreseen to cause harm to others. In other words, a party should not act negligently or recklessly. If a party’s negligence causes injury to another, the injured party has the right to seek compensation by filing a personal injury claim.

Examples of Breach of Duty of Care

A motorist who drives recklessly by speeding, texting while driving, or violating any other traffic law is guilty of breach of duty of care. Joe is driving and takes his eyes off the road to read a text. In doing so, he does not see a pedestrian legally crossing the street. Should Joe hit the pedestrian, he can be held liable for the pedestrian’s injuries and related losses.

A property owner who knows, or should have known, of a hazard on their property and didn’t fix it or warn visitors of the hazard, is guilty of breach of duty of care. Susan knows that the boards of her front porch are rotten and that the porch is in danger of collapsing. If she hasn’t had the porch repaired, roped it off, or tried to warn visitors in some way, she can be held liable should the porch collapse and injure someone.

A manufacturer who fails to adequately test a product before putting it on the market is guilty of breach of duty of care. Axim Corp. manufactures automobile tires. To increase profit margins, they begin using a cheaper type of rubber, one that hasn’t been tested adequately. Because of the inferior materials used, the tire’s treads start to shred at speeds of over 50 mph. Axim Corp. can be held liable for any property loss, injury, or death related to their tires failing.
