La palabra del día: Culpa

Feminine noun. From the Latin culpa, fault.
In Legal Spanish culpa refers to the omission of the due diligence, which implies that the resulting harmful fact motivates civil or criminal liability.
From culpa we have two different adjectives: a. culposo, as in delito culposo, which is an unintentional act or omission that causes harm to a person; in other words, it is a harmful act done without dolo, that is, without having a malicious intention of committing harm to another; and b. culpable, translated as guilty. dc
