What type of damages should be allowable in a products liability case and who should be held responsible?
Granted Byslma vs Burger King is a bit of a bizarre case, but do you think the court got it right? Please address the following issues:
- What degree of injury should a person have to experience from consumption of a contaminated food before that injured party can hold another person responsible?
- Do you think the current policy of holding food companies responsible for injury that their products cause regardless of whether they followed best practices or not is a good policy – why or why not?
- Do you think emotional distress should be part of a food products liability action, and if so under what circumstances?
- At what point should a company be held responsible for the intentional acts of its employees?
Please write at a 2 – 3 page single spaced paper addressing these four issues. Provide a justification based upon the RCW and it interpretation to support your position.
