# reasonable man

The ordinary man, sometimes referred to as the 'man on the Clapham omnibus'. The standard of care in actions for *negligence is based on what a reasonable man might be expected to do considering the circumstances and the foreseeable consequences. The standard is not entirely uniform: a lower standard is expected of a child, but a higher standard is expected of someone, such as a doctor, who purports to possess a special skill.
