What is “duty of care?”
Every member of American society is engaged in a social contract that imposes a legal obligation to avoid causing preventable injury to others. This is called a “duty of care,” and it requires that all citizens adhere to a reasonable standard of care when engaging in actions that could conceivably harm another person. If someone breaches his or her duty of care through negligence and causes injury to you, he or she can be held liable for the losses you suffer as a result.
