3.2a Underpinning Legal Framework and Duty of Care
In England and Wales, two types of law may come into play following an accident or incident on an activity or visit – criminal and/or civil.
Criminal law is about society punishing an offender for committing an offence, which could arise from not meeting their legal duty.
Civil law is about compensating a victim for loss, injury or damage caused by another party.
