Base on the nature of the business there is various tort claims that the business can be sued. Some of the torts claim that the business could be sued food poisoning and physical injuries that the products of the business may cause to the customers. Tort cases of food poisoning create tremendous questions on whether to carry on with the suite or not. Filling the claim on food poisoning is challenging since one must prove that the products they consumed from the shop was contaminated, and the contamination led to sickness. One of the cases of food poisoning that ended in court id the Marmara Istanbul Restaurant. The Doha court found five employees and Marmara Restaurant guilty of selling unfit food to consumers. The incident began in October 2014 when many consumers became ill after consuming fast-food from the restaurant (Sheble & Kovessy). These are a clear indication of a case that the Fresh Sandwich Shop can be sued. The tort case can be based on breaching safety and health laws that have been set in place.
The issue of physical injury is a tort claim that the business could be sued for. Liebeck V. McDonalds Restaurants is a case that can clearly demonstrate the extent in which the Fresh Sandwich Shop can be sued. Tort case can be due to negligence and other tort-related case. In these case, Liebeck filled a lawsuit against McDonald’s restaurant for the injury caused by hot coffee bought from the restaurant. Liebeck became partially disabled years later and suffered permanent disfigurement. In a general analysis, the case McDonald restaurant was taken to task for the injury caused (Cross et al. 280). Just like McDonald restaurant, Fresh Sandwich Shop could be sued for the damages and injury caused by the products and service the business provide.
Based on the tort cases that the business could be sued for, there are possible defenses for tort. One of the ways of defending tort is to negate the elements of plaintiff cause of action. It entails providing evidence that the company did not owe a duty. The company at the same time has to ensure that the food and services provided are within the safety and health laws.
There are potential contractual disputes that Fresh Sandwich Shop could be involved. Contracts are part of daily business and contracts tend to fail leading to various contractual disputes. Restaurant owner-operator disputes is a case that the business could fact. Marriot V Eden Roc is a case that demonstrates contractual disputes (Migdal 111). Zero-hour contracts are contractual disputes that could affect the business. The contract that are made between the business and the employees demand clear agreement.
