EXPANDING LIABILITY FOR NEGLIGENCE PER SE.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The article discusses the failure of a statutory duty that rises to tort liability for the injurer towards the victim under the doctrine of negligence per se in the U.S. It states that not all victims can recover and not all types of injuries are compensable in which the injury must fall to a type wherein the statute was intended to prevent. Furthermore, the court limits liability for breach of a statutory duty since it increases the risks for victims belonging to an injury that is materialized.
