surrounding circumstances

surrounding circumstances
Such as may permit inference of culpability on part of defendant under res ipsa loquitur-Tule, refers not to circumstances directly tending to show lack of care, but only to mere neutral circumstances of control and management by defendant, which may, when explained, appear to be entirely consistent with due care. Hepp v. Quickel Auto & Supply Co., 37 N.M. 525, 25 P.2d 197
