Duty of care and unlawful action

Liability can arise in a number of different ways, for example from a contract or the law (an unlawful action). Either can result in compulsory compensation payment.

An infringement of a right or an action that violates a legal duty or an unwritten standard of care may also be unlawful. Take for example creating a dangerous situation, nuisance, professional errors, unlawful publications and unfair competition. The infringer or acting party can then be held liable for any damage suffered.
