Negligence cases are complex and multifaceted legal matters. To successfully claim damages in personal injury cases, it is important to prove negligence by establishing that a duty of care was owed and that this duty was breached.
The following information explores the concept of duty of care, its breach, and how to determine if this element of negligence has been violated. For professional legal assistance, reach out to our attorneys at Kidwell & Gallagher today.

This responsibility covers a wide range of scenarios, including the obligation of doctors towards their patients, employers towards their employees, or drivers towards pedestrians and other road users such as cyclists.
Again, establishing the existence of a duty of care is necessary as it serves as the foundation for determining negligence. Consequently, the legal system has set aside several guidelines to discern whether this duty exists in a specific case.
Once you have established that a duty of care exists between two parties, you must demonstrate that the duty of care has been breached. A breach occurs when one party fails to fulfill its obligations regarding certain safety measures or reasonable care.
If they fail to do this, the breach will lead to physical, emotional, or financial harm to another party.
To know if a duty of care has been breached in a personal injury case, consider the following:
