Tort/Negligence – Personal Injury – Contributory Negligence – Directed Verdict – Violation of Safety Statute – Evidence of Negligence (access required)

Williams v. Rainey. When a defendant made evidentiary admission by pleading responsible to a safety violation and failed to contradict or explain the admission, the court did not err that the defendant was negligent as a matter of law. When the defendant presented no evidence that plaintiff failed to keep a proper lookout, the trial court did not err by granting plaintiff's motion for a directed verdict as to contributory negligence.
