Vicarious Liability

A landlord is responsible for injuries incurred by a third party doing work on his property. In this case, a landlord authorized the tenant to prune the branches on a tree in his yard. A limb fell on the tenant’s daughter causing severe internal injuries. The court found that the landlord is liable for the daughter’s injuries because he should have taken more care in choosing his contractor.
