Q5. What is the ‘neighbour principle’? Explain the term ‘neighbour’ and discuss where the term might be derived from.
Neighbour principle refers to the responsibility of reasonable care for that your act or omission to avoid injuries to persons who are close and directly in relation to the operation of the offender. The latter should take these people into account . This obligation is therefore not absolute and general . This, to whom the person has a duty of care, depends on the legal and factual situation in which the person is located. Thus, if the perpetrator had duty of care, the victim and his behaviour was negligent, the injured party is entitled to claim for damages.

As a result, it took different forms. Still, the law of torts is closest in terms of the way and the concept of regulation to the Roman model. The English law of torts reminds its way of regulating the criminal law which, instead of one general rule, distinguishes many crimes. Consequently, a single act of a man may be several concurrent torts. The English law of torts has its roots dating back to the thirteenth century. It is derived from the royal writ, special permission to pursue claims in front of the royal court. Writ was issued by the Lord Chancellor, and their number was limited. Initially, this instrument was used to ensure public order. The evolution of English law led to creation of many types of torts, each with different nevi. Until the mid-nineteenth century, the plaintiff was obliged to indicate the basis of its action and the incorrect classification of the general type of action in tort, resulted in dismissal of the claim. For these reasons, a long time subject to English law studies were torts in general, and single torts.

These differences manifest themselves both: in defining this concept, as well as placement in the system of civil liability. This concept, which like most of the concepts of modern civil law, has its roots in the Roman period. It shares the fate of tort law to regulate the whole. If, therefore, the legal system will create a closed list of crimes under private law, they will also independently define the notion of illegality, which become relevant similar to that given to it in the criminal law. In cases where liability in tort will be regulated by general standard, it will be possible, in turn, to shape illegality as a contradiction with specific norms outside the control of the tort law (in which case the liability settlement takes the form of standards blanket, or an annex to the other branch of law), or also give this concept the importance of self (which in turn will make the overall tort standard to be a general clause). In both cases, the problem remains open to determine the content of illegality and, therefore, of what kind of standards contradiction of action lets you specify them as unlawful. So in the history of law as well as in the moment in the European legal systems there are all ways of defining illegality, while within each of them we can point to significant differences. Therefore, discussing
