Baine visits his neighbour’s house for a party. At the party Baine is injured when the floor he is standing on collapses, causing him to fall into an underground pit. His neighbour, Neil, had failed to repair the floor despite being warned about it three months ago by other house guests. As a result of the fall, Baine suffers serious neck injuries and wants to sue Neil for $385,000.
Discuss how Baine’s matter would proceed through court, including all appellate avenues. Provide two examples of ways the parties can resolve their dispute without proceeding to litigation.
Finally, explain whether the matter involves civil or criminal law.
