Below are the directions for this critical thinking assignment. The class subject is Business Law. I’ve already identified the 4 elements of negligence which are Duty, Breach, Causation, and Damages. I’ve also attached a screenshot further explaining the 4 elements of negligence. The directions are as follows:
You work for a highly successful international manufacturer. Your boss is working with a group of clients who are located overseas and are not familiar with U.S. tort law. Your boss requests you to conduct some research on product liability. You recall from your business classes that businesses that make, sell, or lease goods can be held liable for the physical harm or property damage caused by those goods to consumers, users, or bystanders.
In your report, you are to include the following information:
- Identify and discuss the four (4) elements of negligence.
- Using the internet, research and analyze a legal case involving products liability.
- Discuss in detail the defenses that were raised or could have been raised.
- Provide your opinion on whether you believe it is fair to hold employers responsible for the negligent acts of their employees.
Your well-written paper should be three to four pages in length, not including the title or references pages. Include a minimum of three legal references as support for your paper. The CSU Global Library website (Links to an external site.) can help you with finding quality resources.
Review the grading rubric and make sure to conform to APA guidelines in the CSU Global Writing Center (Links to an external site.). Be sure to reach out to your instructor early in the week if you have questions about the assignment.
