Definition: Assumed Duty Of Care



Full Definition of Assumed Duty Of Care


In general, English law does not regard an omission to act (see: Omission) as conferring criminal liability. One of the places where it might do so is where a duty of care exists. Failing to act in a way compatible with that duty of care may constitute the Actus Reus of a criminal offence (see: R v Stone And Dobinson 1977).
