Breach of duty means a violation of a duty.  Within the field of torts there must be a duty that is owed by one party to another.  When one party breaches or violates that duty then two of the elements of a tort claim have been met.

Breach of Duty– Causation

The third element of a tort is that of causation and the final element is resulting damage.

Breach of Duty Examples

Breach of duty is a necessary element of any claim. It may come in the form of running a red light.  Also it may come in the form of a physician performing a procedure in a subpar fashion.In addition it may come in the form of a landowner not exercising reasonable care in the maintenance of their premises.Or it may come in the form of an attorney failing to exercise reasonable care in the delivery of legal services. You may see it in a manufacturer failing to produce airbags in conformance with industry standards. An accountant failing to claim tax deductions that would have saved the client substantial money in taxes may be a breach.
