Esposito v. Davis 2 The factors that indicate whether Davis owed Esposito a duty of care consist of three basic elements. “They are the likelihood that his conduct will injure others, taken with the seriousness of the injury if it happens, and balanced against the cost of the precaution he must take to avoid the risk. If the product of the likelihood of the injury exceeds the burden of the precautions, the risk is unreasonable and the failure to take precautions is negligence.” (Jentz, G. A., & Miller, R. L. , 2008) The Louisiana law that set precedents over trip-and-fall cases was Frelow v. St. Paul Fire & Marine Ins. The ruling in this case was that Louisiana law recognizes a legal duty on the part of employees to exercise reasonable care not to obstruct the flow of pedestrian traffic. Esposito was walking in a straight line when Davis decided to suddenly to turn, without warning, knocking her to the ground.

    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.
