Imagine you arrive at hospital for an operation on your left foot and the surgeon then operates on your right foot? In such an event it is likely that either the surgeon, or perhaps the person providing him or her with the notes on the operation to be carried out has been negligent in their duties. The law of negligence relates to the breach of duty of care that is owed to you by someone or an organisation. Think of negligence as arising when somebody makes a big mistake. It can come into play in many situations where somebody has a responsibility to you, but the establishment of negligence and your potential to be compensated will all depend on the circumstances and your ability to prove their existence.
