2017 Essay Question
An employer hired a driver to operate a delivery van. Before the employer allowed the driver to operate the van, the employer checked the driver’s prior employers, required the driver to undergo a physical examination by a licensed doctor, and provided the driver with extensive training in car safety. Frank, the medical doctor who examined the driver, discovered that the driver had a sleeping disorder that caused the driver to randomly fall asleep and that the driver had on multiple occasions fallen asleep while driving. The driver pleaded with Frank not to tell the employer about the sleeping disorder. Frank agreed, and omitted this information from the driver’s physical examination form that he sent to the employer. Frank also sent a letter to the employer assuring him that the driver was medically fit to be a delivery driver. The employer then provided the driver with a daily route and paid him a weekly salary. While the driver was making deliveries for the employer, the delivery van left the road and struck a pedestrian, who suffered severe injuries as a result. The pedestrian filed a lawsuit for the damages as a result of the serious injuries sustained in the car accident against the driver, the employer, and Frank the doctor.
- Can the pedestrian prevail under the doctrine of res ipsa loquitur concerning Driver’s alleged negligence? Discuss.
- What arguments will the pedestrian make in support of his negligence claims, what defenses can be raised, and who is likely to win in a lawsuit filed by the pedestrian against: a. The employer? Discuss. b. Frank the doctor? Discuss.
