When lawyers refer to negligence cases, they often define "duty" as the obligation that each person has to protect and be aware of the safety of others. This definition plays a part in negligence cases because it helps set a standard for conduct.
That standard is usually set at doing something a reasonable person would do in the same circumstances. While that standard may seem vague, it is often used as the standard for judging negligence cases.
