The “tort of negligence”

The traditional evaluation of the ‘tort of negligence’ proposes that three main factors are required to be fulfilled as an obligation condition: the defendant should owe a duty of care to the plaintiff when the specific duty has been breached and this has consequently caused damage or injury. It can be observed that when an individual claims compensation for a psychiatric injury the courts have been unwilling to implement the negligence principle of “foresee ability” solely.
