Legal Advice

Negligence

Establishing duty of care is not a simple task as it’s quite difficult to prove that the person you are blaming for your loss actually had a responsibility towards your care. Only a seasoned personal injury lawyer can help you validate your claim.

Duty of care and what it means

Duty of care extends to all citizens of the country but holds special value for those who are connected to the medical profession or the care giving services.

According to the law each person has a moral and legal obligation to refrain from causing harm/ damage to another human life or mind by way of deliberate intent or carelessness. Duty of care extends to pieces of property belonging to other people which are given for safekeeping or trust in your care.

How is personal injury caused by negligence/ breach of care?

Sometimes it’s quite obvious that an injury has been caused by negligence. For example a person slips on a wet floor at his workplace. It’s apparent that this is the negligence of office staff who is supposed to keep the floor dry/ provide a warning sign “danger wet floor”.

You might think it’s quite simple to establish cause in this case. But be aware that the defence lawyer for the establishment may prove that your injury was caused earlier in the morning at your own home when you slipped on a couple of stairs. Don’t assume that you will have an easy time getting compensation so hire a good lawyer to make the process easier.
