Though Calgary is one of the safest cities in Canada—and the world—accidents can and do happen every day.
In Part 1 of this article, we introduced the concepts of duty of care—the legal notion that we all have a responsibility to prevent our actions from causing harm to others, and that others have the same responsibility not to harm us—and negligence—what happens when, through recklessness or carelessness, someone fails to live up to their duty of care. Both of these concepts are critical components of Calgary personal injury law.
