Washington State Supreme Court Committee on Jury Instructions
Part IX. Particularized Standards of Conduct
Chapter 100. Common Carriers
WPI 100.14 Facilities for Prospective Passengers
(No instruction is set forth.)
The former instruction addressed the standard of ordinary care that common carriers owe to non-passengers using their facilities. This is the same duty of care that businesses generally owe with respect to activities or conditions on their premises. Accordingly, for cases involving non-passengers on the premises of common carriers, practitioners should refer to the general instruction WPI 120.06.01 (Duty of Business Proprietor to Customer—Activities or Condition of Premises). For cases involving passengers, practitioners should instead refer to the heightened standard of care for common carriers found in WPI 100.01 (Common Carrier—Duty to Passengers).
