Homework Answer on Air regulations
- Intentional tort is committed when an individual acts in a manner that hurts another party while negligence occurs when a person who is supposed to act in a certain way fails to fulfill his/her duty, leading to injuries or harm to another individual.
- A standard of care relates to the duties that an employee has as outlined in the Federal Air regulations. The standard of care provides the basis of argument in determining whether the individual was negligent.
- Negligence per se occurs when an individual who is responsible for a particular duty violates the existing regulations and as a result causes harm to the other individuals.
5.Tort of negligence leads to punitive measures if the persons responsible fails to fulfill their duties and this causes harm to the person they owe the service. In strict liability, people can be held liable even for mistakes done by other people, provided there is enough evidence that they failed their duties.
