The specifics of a person or company’s obligation is called a duty of care. For example, a driver has a duty to follow the rules of the road and to ensure that he exercises as much caution as an average reasonable person would. A doctor has a duty to provide professional care; and a company has a duty to make sure it tests its products and doesn’t release a defective product to the public. Even property owners and renters have an obligation to their visitors. Whenever a person or a company fails to live up to his duty of care and an accident occurs as a result, victims can file a personal injury claim.  Victims will have the burden of proving that the defendant was negligent or failed to fulfill his obligation; and will have the burden of showing how badly they were damaged.
