What is a duty of care?

Duty of care is a legal term that refers to an individual’s responsibility to conduct themselves in a manner that does not put others at unnecessary risk of experiencing an accident or injury. An individual’s duty of care can be breached in a variety of ways depending on what sort of activities they engage in, such as driving at unsafe speeds, failing to safely maintain their property, or selling a defective or dangerous product. To learn more about how duty of care can affect civil litigation regarding an injury, call an attorney at the Law Office of Bill Pelhan today at 717-392-6362.
