Vicarious liability

Show on page(s): 

"Generally, vicarious liability may be imposed upon a non-negligent person by reason of some closely integrated relationship existing between him and the negligent party.  The essence of such relationship is that the person to whom the negligence is imputed has sufficient control over the acts of the negligent party to justify the conclusion that he is responsible for what happened.  The facts and circumstances of each case must be examined individually to determine whether the relationship in question exhibits the necessary degree of control to justify the imputation of negligence from one party to the other."
