TORTS, CRIMINAL LAW AND CYBERCRIME 2 Torts, Criminal Law and Cybercrime What are the elements of negligence? When and how can a plaintiff claim damages if the defendant has breached a duty of care? There are four elements to a negligence claim according to aliains.com (ALIA, 2017); those are as follow: there was a duty owed by the defendant to the plaintiff/claimant to conform to a certain standard of conduct or care; the defendant breached that duty of conduct or care; the breach of duty was both the actual cause and the proximate cause of the damage or there is an actual, measurable and probable monetary loss related to the damage. Duty can include a landlord who owes a duty to his tenants to maintain his building to ensure that it is safe for all who live there. Breach of Duty is if duty was violated such as a landlord who has duty to ensure the safety of his tenants.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
