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.
