Standards of Care

The standard of care required in negligence law typically relates to a person’s conduct, rather than a person’s state of mind. In most instances, a defendant is required to exercise the same “ordinary care” or “due care” that a reasonable person would exercise in the same or similar circumstances. Negligence cases often focus on the reasonableness requirement.
