CARDWARE Negligence 2 Date: 7/18/16 To: Candie Cardigan, CEO CARDWARE Inc. From: Sandra Hurd, Paralegal Re: Negligence Requirements and Potential Defenses to Myra’s Claim Candie Cardigan was asked to model CARDWARE’s newest sweater, called “Naturally There”. The modeling event was held at Easton Hotel. Several models had gone before Candie, so she proceeded down the runway, Candie’s left shoe found a wrinkle in the runway carpet, causing her to fall off the stage right into the judges’ area. In the process Myra, one of the judges, received a broken nose and facial cut from Candie’s high heel. Myra is now bringing a lawsuit of Negligence against CARDWARE and Candie Cardigan. Negligence has 4 elements that need to be met for a lawsuit to move forward in or out of court. Negligence elements are: Duty of Care, Breach of Duty to that Care, Causation (Actual and Proximate), and Damages. Duty of Care: the defendant had a responsibility to the safety of plaintiff. Breach of Duty: the” but for” test is used, such as, the defendant would have not tripped over a wrinkle in the runway carpet, the plaintiff would not have been injured. Causation has two items to look at; a) the actual cause, this being the Defendant had tripped on a wrinkle in the carpet, falling into the judges’ table, breaking the nose and cutting the face of one of the judges.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
