The unfortunate crime wave in Shady Town had just happened, the BUG plant has had vehicles vandalized in its parking lot as well as some night employees have been robbed while they walked to their cars. Even though the parking lot is well lit beside some light are out; it is unforeseen that things such as these have to happen. Beside for what just happened, a vendor was attacked and robbed of his wallet and the electronic chips he was waiting to delivering to the dock manager. Now that an unexpected crime has happened, had lead to discuss any tort liability BUG may have to the BUG employees and the vendor. Tort is a large subject area in litigation, in which a victim generally seeks money from some person, or some corporation who harmed the victim. BUG will consider several things before offering any compensation BUG employees or to the vendor. The crime wave could not have been avoided even if reasonable care had been taken such as repair all broken light in the parking lot and docking area. For example, if the employee or BUG had reason to believe that the employee was going to be robbed while in the parking lot. Otherwise, nothing can be held against BUG because nothing can be proven. Employees may believe they got robbed due to the fact that there were lights out in the parking lot, the same scenario would play out, all BUG would say is that the light outage was unexpected and BUG had no reason to believe that the lights were going to go out. BUG employees and the vendor can expect to go after BUG due to that fact that their safety is in jeopardy while working. Employees can maintain that BUG should have taken precautions before the robberies occurred. BUG should have provided parking lot security, cameras, or other deterrents in order to protect the safety of their employees. Whether security or cameras would have helped is unknown, but it would be in the defense of the company when such things happen.
