A Case of Negligence: Strait Water Taxi

For this assignment, you will explain how you     would deal with a case of negligence if you were the injured party.

The Scenario

You and your significant other had booked a     week-long holiday on a quiet island in the Strait of Georgia. You had already paid for a               waterfront cabin, rental bicycles, and a             whale watching tour totaling $1000. You also     paid to charter the water taxi to the island         through Strait Water Taxi.

On the journey there, the water taxi hit a big   wave causing an unsecured piece of luggage to knock you to the ground. This caused injuries     severe enough that you had to spend the week   in the hospital with your partner by your side.   You have received no refunds from your missed holiday.

The water taxi company was not insured for     negligence and is not taking responsibility. The owner of the water taxi says that you can sue     the driver but that he does not owe you           anything. He is no longer returning your emails.

Your assignment

Explain the steps that you will take to sue the   water taxi company for negligence. In this        report, make it clear exactly which injuries you will sue for. You will need to use the following     terms in your report:

  • unintentional tort
  • negligence
  • plaintiff
  • defendant
  • duty of care/standard of care/ actual injury/ causation of injury
  • res Ipas loquitor
  • defense
  • employer/employee

                                                                         Be sure to explain the entire process from the time of injury until you receive a settlement.     You can use your own name in the report or you can create a name for a fictional character who receives the injury.
