    What Is Gross Negligence Manslaughter? | Kangs National Defence Team

    A four stage test as to whether or not the offence has been committed is set out in case law as follows:

    • A duty of care to the deceased must have existed;
    • There must have been a breach of that duty;
    • The breach must have caused or contributed significantly to the death; and
    • The breach should be characterised as gross negligence, and therefore a crime.
