What Does “Breach of Duty” Mean in Personal Injury Cases?
When one is establishing liability for an accident, there are several different claims that a plaintiff can make to assert why they believe that the defendant is responsible for their injury. If it is concluded that the defendant committed a “breach of duty”, it means that they knew they might be placing the victim in harm’s way, and failed to correct the situation. However, if the defendant was unaware that they were putting someone in harm’s way, but it is concluded that a reasonable and competent individual would have foreseen the risk of injury, they still committed a breach of duty and will be ordered to compensate the victim.
