read the two scenarios below, and write a two page paper in apa format, double spaced, in 12 point font and with a 1” margin for each scenario. please make sure to properly cite all sources.

1.joe english, an engineer with national construction, travels to wv steel company in west virginia to buy steel cable made by wv steel to help support the upper decks of a new football stadium national is building in colorado. jessica smith, a contractor with wv steel, looks at the plans for the stadium and sells the recommended cable to national. the stadium is built using the cable wv steel selected. during a football game, the upper deck collapses due to the inability of the cable to support the weight load. national construction now faces a lawsuit from thousands of plaintiffs injured or killed in the collapse. while on the trip to look at the plans, jessica crashes her business car into a busload of children. the accident happened because jessica ran a red light; she was late for her meeting with wv steel and was rushing. three children were hospitalized, and the bus driver was injured such that she can never drive a bus again.

write a persuasive argument defending your position. cover the following:

1.assuming the steel cable was not defective in either its design or manufacturing process, does national have a cause of action against wv steel? the bus passengers have a cause of action against wv steel? jessica?

3.what are the legal responsibilities and liabilities of the above parties?
4.what would be the impact of this type of legal issue to small and large businesses?

2.larry johnson bought a new chevrolet from joe’s chevy. chevrolet’s are made by general motors corporation (gmc). four years later, johnson crashed into the rear of another car while travelling to work. johnson did not see that the car had stopped because he was texting his girlfriend. the speed of johnson’s vehicle at the time of the crash was estimated to be less than 35 miles per hour. a properly functioning seatbelt will restrain the driver from impact with the steering wheel and the windshield during a crash at a speed of up to 40 miles per hour. during the crash, the seatbelt that johnson was properly wearing broke away from its anchor, causing johnson to be thrown against the steering wheel and into the windshield. johnson received a fractured vertebra, broken ribs, and a fractured left arm. johnson sued gmc, chevrolet, and the dealership that sold him the vehicle. johnson claimed in his lawsuit that because the seat belt broke, the defendants were strictly liable for his injuries. he also argued that all parties were negligent. investigation determined that the seatbelt anchor was both inadequate to sustain the forces involved in restraining a person during a crash, and had been installed in a manner that increases the likelihood of failure during a crash.
write a persuasive argument defending your position. cover the following:

1.are the defendants strictly liable to johnson? why or why not?
2.what are the legal responsibilities and liabilities?
3.would an issue such as this impact small and large businesses? explain your answer.
