Good Samaritan Laws were primarily developed for first aid situations to help protect rescuers voluntarily helping a victim in distress from being successfully sued in tort (i.e. for wrongdoing). They are designed to encourage people to help a stranger who needs assistance by reducing or eliminating the fear that, if they do so, they will suffer possible legal repercussions in the event that they inadvertently make a mistake in treating the victim.
