n. from a Biblical story, if a volunteer comes to the aid of an injured or ill person who is a stranger, the person giving the aid owes the stranger a duty of being reasonably careful. In some circumstances negligence could result in a claim of negligent care if the injuries or illness were made worse by the volunteer's negligence. Thus, if Jack Goodguy sees a man lying by the road, a victim of a hit and run accident, and moves the injured man, resulting in a worsening of the injury or a new injury, instead of calling for an ambulance, Goodguy may find himself on the wrong end of a lawsuit for millions of dollars.

    Nací en la ciudad de Guadalajara y el idioma inglés aunque no me atrae mucho, considero es necesario solo como una herramienta de comunicación básico. Lo he estudiado en diferentes etapas de mi vida desde chico. Ademas cuento con parientes en Canadá y E. U. A. Quiero mejorar en el inglés por lo menos un 30% más.
