Tort Case Scenarios
Tort Case Scenarios The scenarios below provide several examples of torts to include negligence, unintentional torts, intentional torts, assault, battery, etc. Torts are civil wrongs recognized by law as grounds for a lawsuit. These wrongs result in an injury or harm constituting the basis for a claim by the injured party (Cornell, 2010).
Scenario 1 Scenario 1 has multiple instances that happen during the game that raises attention between people. Most of these instances have enough evidence to go to court and possibly win the case. Scenario 1 starts out by Daniel and his son going to the football game. During the game, one of the fans gets hurt due to one of the players breaking the quarterback’s arm and throwing the ball to the fan. This would be a negligence tort. The fan would be the plaintiff suing the team, the team member, as well as the stadium, which would be the defendants.
Unintentional Tort Scenario 1 also deals with another fan, Malik, who gets upset on the referee’s call and by accident spills his cold beer on Ruben, Daniel’s 8 years old son. This would be an unintentional tort, since it was an accident spilling the cold beer on Ruben. Ruben would be considered as a potential plaintiff, while Malik would be the defendant. I don’t believe the case would get too far, since it could be proven that it was totally an accident of spilling the cold bear on Ruben.
Intentional Tort Daniel gets upset on Malik for ruining his son’s enjoyment of the game. Daniel shoves Malik. Malik falls down and hits his face on the aisle steps and knocks out two of his front teeth. Daniel’s actions would be considered as intentional tort, since he did plan to hurt Malik intentionally. In this situation, Malik would be considered as the plaintiff and Daniel, the defendant. I believe Daniel would be guilty in this tort. Malik on the other hand would still be guilty of spilling the bear on

    In the case at Gigantic State University, students that were a part of the SFT committed several careless acts. Within this particular case there was a definite crime that was committed because both Prudence’s physical and mental integrity was harmed. Not only could this case be classified according to the textbook as an intentional tort against persons but could be put into intentional tort against property. Torts against persons are intentional acts that harm an individual’s physical or mental integrity (Kubasek, pg. 111). A person who is legally injured may be able to use tort law to recover damages from someone who is legally responsible, or “liable,” for those injuries. According to the case, Prudence’s physical integrity was harmed…

    1. Intentional torts are actions with the purpose or intention to injure another person or that person’s property. The person inflicting the harm is called a tortfeasor. Intentional torts require intent. The person who committed the tort must have intended to cause harm. The harm, however, does not require malice or ill will, just the knowledge that certain consequences would result from their acts. Most often, the consequences result in some type of harm. Intentional torts involve intentional acts, and carry a high degree of risk if injury, and usually a low degree of social benefit. The risk generally outweighs the benefit received; therefore, the duty not to intentionally injure someone or something is great.…

    Rule: A negligent tort involves the failure to exercise reasonable care to protect another’s person or property. It wouldn’t qualify for an intentional tort because Arnold and Sylvia did not willfully take actions that were likely to cause injury. Duty, Branch of Duty, Causation, and Damages are all required in order for a plaintiff to prove negligence of a defendant. The reasonable person standard, which the courts use to determine whether or not an individual owes a duty of care to another, states that the courts generally hold that landowners have a duty of care to protect individuals on their property. However, in Hudson v. Janesville Conservation Club, Hudson held that under the statute 895.52, “no owner is liable for any injury resulting from an attack by a wild animal.” An exception to this statute is if the injury occurs to a social guest who has been invited to their property by the owner. Section 895.52 of Wisconsin law also provides property owners with immunity from liability to anyone injured by a person engaging in recreational activity regardless of whether the injured person was also engaged in recreational activity.…
