    donoghue v stevenson 1932 ac 562


    In the landmark case of Donoghue v Stevenson (1932), the House of Lords established the principle of duty of care in English tort law. The case involved Mrs. Donoghue who fell ill after consuming a ginger beer contaminated by a snail. Despite not having a contractual relationship with the manufacturer, Lord Atkin's famous "neighbor principle" held that individuals must take reasonable care to avoid acts or omissions that could foreseeably harm others closely affected by those actions. This ruling laid the foundation for modern negligence law, shaping legal standards worldwide and emphasizing the responsibility to prevent harm to others.
