Duties of Care

In law, a duty of care is a legal obligation imposed on a person (or entity) requiring that he or she (or it) adhere to a standard of reasonable care while performing any acts that could foreseeably harm others. Duty of care is the first element that must be established to proceed with an action for negligence; the claimant must be able to show a duty of care imposed by law that the defendant has breached.
