Assignment Task
Part A
Scenario
Perry has just started work as an apprentice for Brooster’s Builders. He asks Bert for a hard hat and also complains to him that Jakob and Tom keep playing jokes on him by removing safety clips on platforms where he is working. Bert tells Perry to grow up and stop moaning. One day a workmate loosens the safety clip on Perry’s scaffolding and Perry falls off breaking both legs and suffering a blow to the head.
Perry is taken to Hopeless Hospital where a doctor diagnoses and treats Perry’s broken legs. The doctor does not notice that this is a complex fracture and as aresult, Perry is permanently disabled. Had he been treated correctly, he would have made a full recovery.
Assess the possible liability of the parties

What is Referencing

A referencing system gives credit to sources that you have used in your writing. They provide shortcuts to the authority which is used to support your arguments and ideas. A referencing system provides you with the essential means to attribute the work of other authors in your writing. This is essential at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. There are a variety of referencing systems, some of which are subject specific. The requirement of the LLB Common Law is that you use OSCOLA (Oxford Standard Citation of Legal Authorities)
