    when do you owe a duty of care to someone


    You generally owe a duty of care to someone when your actions, or lack thereof, could reasonably foreseeably cause them harm. This duty arises in situations where a reasonable person would anticipate that their actions might affect others. For example, a doctor owes a duty of care to their patients, a driver owes it to other road users, and a business owes it to its customers. It's about acting responsibly to prevent harm, based on what a reasonable person would do in similar circumstances. So, essentially, it's about being mindful of how your actions might impact others and taking reasonable steps to prevent harm.
