The Good Samaritan doctrine is used by rescuers to avoid civil liability for injuries arising from their negligence. Its purpose is to encourage emergency assistance by removing the threat of liability for damage done by the assistance. However, the assistance must be reasonable; a rescuer cannot benefit from the Good Samaritan doctrine if the assistance is reckless or grossly negligent.
Four key elements support a successful invocation of the Good Samaritan doctrine: (1) the care rendered was performed as the result of the emergency, (2) the initial emergency or injury was not caused by the person invoking the defense, (3) the emergency care was not given in a grossly negligent or reckless manner, and (4) aid was given with permission whenever possible to obtain it.STATES WITH GOOD SAMARITAN LAWSAlabama

James M. Ratcliffe has written: 'The good Samaritan and the law' -- subject(s): Law and ethics
A lawyer, an expert in the teachings of the Law of Moses, asked Jesus the question "who is my neighbour". Jesus told the parable of the good Samaritan as an answer to the question. The Samaritans and the Jews did not like each other and a Jew would not have considered a Samaritan his neighbour. The parable teaches that you should consider even your enemy as your neighbour.
hey i need an answer hey i need an answer
I believe some jurisdictions in the United States have anacted a "Good Samaritan Law". The law basically says that if you see someone in trouble and you don't help them, that could be a crime. I have added a link for you to follow on a good article. The good Samaritan act is not to criminalise failure to help but to prevent those that do help from being sued. Being sued, especially in the west, many see as a great danger when attempting to help someone. Failing to reduce a known or perceived hazard, especially in the workplace, would be considered a crime.
