The wrongful death lawsuit filed by Meadow Walker (Paul Walker's daughter), was responded to by the German automobile manufacturer specializing in high-performance sports car - Porsche. The daughter of the Fast & Furious actor claims that her father would still be alive if the vehicle had proper safety features that would have given him the necessary protection from the tremendous impact of the crash. A representative of Porsche, said in a statement, "We felt sorrow whenever anyone is hurt in a Porsche vehicle, but we believe the authorities' reports in this case clearly recognized that this tragic crash resulted from reckless driving and excessive speed." Reportedly, the Sheriff's Department of Los Angeles County stated that the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, which was driven by Roger Rodas (Paul Walker's friend) was on the speed of "between 80 and 93 mph at the time the car hit a power pole and several trees." This was coupled with a report from CNN claiming that the speed limit posted on the office park road should have only been 45 mph.
From her upstairs room at the gas station, Myrtle saw an approaching car. Mistakenly believing Tom had returned for her, she ran out towards the car, but was struck and killed instantly. Panicked, Daisy drove away from the scene of the accident. When the rest of us arrived at the crime scene, Tom told George that it was Gatsby's car that killed
Tice, 33 Cal. 2d 80, 199 P.2d 1 (1948) FACTS: Plaintiff Summers's action was against defendants Tice and Simonson for an injury to his eye and face as the result of being struck by shotgun discharge on November 20, 1945 while plaintiff and the two defendants were hunting quail. At bench trial, the court found that as a direct result of the shooting by defendants, the shots struck plaintiff and that defendants were negligent. The plaintiff was not contributorily negligent. The defendants argued that they were not joint tortfeasors, and thus not jointly and severally liable, as they were not acting in concert, and that there was not sufficient evidence indicating which defendant was responsible for the the injuries.
Question 1 Duty of care can be defined as ‘the lawful duty to prevent causing any harm or injury by taking reasonable care.’ There will be a breach of duty of care owed towards the claimant if there is an act or omission that causes the harm or injury. The neighbour principle is where an individual able to reasonably foresee that his or her actions might cause physical harm or injury to another individual or property of others, thus there will be a duty to take reasonable care in most circumstances (Law & Martin (ed.) 2013, p. 187). In the well-known case of Donoghue v Stevenson  AC 562, Lord Atkin developed a principle known as the ‘neighbour principle’ to determine when duty of care might arise. The extent to which a duty of care exists will be subject to the relationship between the parties as well as the different circumstances of the case (Law & Martin (ed.)
A tragic motor vehicle event occurred in January of 2018 in Las Vegas that lead to safety concerns and the question - are driving licenses given too easily and should this right be given an extensive right to obtain? An implausible story highlighted a speeding driver who was under the influence of drugs (marijuana) and proceeded to his car being smashed into a building 60 feet up in the air. Local police confirmed that 2 people were inside the car at the time (who’s names have not been disclosed). Both individuals did survive the insane crash. Authorities such as The Orange County Fire Authority and The Santa Ana Police Department confirmed using CCTV cameras that the driver had hit a centre divide which therefore projected the car into the building wall.
It would be ‘fair, just, and reasonable to impose a duty’ on Jenifer but, may open floodgates to similar claims. It can be concluded; a duty is established. Secondly, there must be a breach of duty, this is objectively assessed on the balance of probabilities. Firstly, in law how should the defendant have behaved in the circumstances? Secondly, in fact how did the defendant behave, and did there conduct fall below the reasonable standard of care
However, all those dreams would never come true. The car which reflects the reality bring them to the tragedy. The green light is also the symbol the ending of Myrtle’s life. The green light represents its meaning when Myrtle didn’t wait for the treen traffic light, she crossed the road and got the accident. Sarah Churchwell, in her recent book Careless People, quotes from New Yorkers’ complaints in newspaper letters to the editor in 1922 and 1924 about the confusing new traffic signals “green in this city when displayed on a tower means stop”; “our signal system provides .
It is essential to state that which shifts is the evidential burden and it has to be proved on a balance of probabilities. The above details can be appreciated in the case of Attorney General v Lyampali and Liso in which the accused persons had to prove on a balance of probabilities that they had lawful authority or reasonable excuse for “possessing offensive weapons in a public place”, elements which had been proved by the prosecution. Having considered the presumption of innocence as guaranteed under the constitution and the extent to which it is afforded protection, it is pertinent to consider the right contained and guaranteed under article 18(7) of the Constitution, which is to be discussed under the heading below. 2. Competence and Compellability of an Accused
