Helping You Recover

As a victim of a personal injury accident, you may be entitled to seek compensation for the medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering that you have had to endure when someone else is negligent. “Duty of Care” is a legal term that you will often hear in reference to personal injury claims. It refers to the obligation we all have to make sure our actions don’t harm others. If someone knows there is a danger and doesn’t take action to prevent an accident that is abandoning their duty of care.

For example: If the host of a party serves alcohol to an intoxicated guest who then causes a car wreck, the host may be held responsible. This social host law is one which our firm helped to establish in North Carolina. A truck driver who knowingly carries a load that is too heavy can cause an accident. If he knew the weight exceeded the legal limit, he is said to have abandoned his duty of care. If a supervisor knowingly assigns an employee to use faulty machinery, and that employee gets hurt, the supervisor may have abandoned her duty of care.
