Analyze and describe specific potential tort risks and liabilities that GC could face under negligence
Tort risks and liabilities
Background: With some understanding of the legal system, the GC owners can now shift focus to examining specific areas of law that create potential risks and liabilities for their business. The group knows from their business experience, that businesses face serious and costly risks and legal liabilities stemming from tort law.
Unintentional harm resulting from accidents, such as in the unintentional torts of negligence and product liability, can result in costly litigation. For example, Madison’s remodeling business was sued by a client injured when one of the roofing employees accidentally dropped a ladder on that client’s leg.
The GC owners are concerned about the possibility of accidents occurring in Green Clean public offices that could create risks of premises liability under negligence.
Instructions: Winnie and Ralph have given you the responsibility of analyzing and summarizing potential negligence and premises liability risks that GC might face in its business operations. Specifically, you are tasked with creating a presentation report of your findings for GC owners at their next meeting with TLG.
The presentation should address only the tort of negligence and include the following parts.
Analyze and describe specific potential tort risks and liabilities that GC could face under negligence for each of the following:
1. Injury to GC employees occurring during the performance of cleaning services on clients’ commercial property include a specific example as part of the analysis report
2. Injury to any GC office employee working within the scope of his/her job occurring during business hours in GC’s public offices.
