Definition Edit

In tort law, the standard of care is the degree of prudence and caution required of an individual who is under a duty of care.

The requirements of the standard are closely dependent on circumstances. Whether the standard of care has been breached is determined by the trier of fact, and is usually phrased in terms of what the reasonable person would have done under the circumstances.
