Peredia v. HR Mobile Services, Inc., 074083

Held that a workplace safety consultant was not entitled to summary judgment against a claim that it negligently caused an employee's accidental death. The safety consultant, hired by a dairy farm, argued that it owed no duty of care to the farm's employees, including a teenage boy who had been run over by a tractor. On appeal, the Fifth Appellate District concluded that there were disputed issues of material fact related to the existence of a duty of care and other elements of the boy's parents' wrongful death claim.
