When speaking of exceptions to liability, it means that it is a kind of clause to limit the responsibilities of each of the parties signing a contract. Whether for purchase transactions – sale of goods and services, employment contracts, among others. This exception of liability is governed entirely by the laws of the State of Texas.
When the parties introduce this clause, they seek to exclude themselves from any consequential damages, as well as to establish limits on the responsibility of one or both signing or litigating parties, in the event that any transaction or action may lead to damages. Additionally, this resource contains some common exceptions when it comes to limitations of liability.
For example, if someone is going to be hired on a job, the employer can introduce an exception to liability in the event of a serious accident. That is, the employer can establish in the contract that it is not responsible for benefit payments after the death of a worker, after the money has been sent to the recipient who is the representative of the deceased employee.
However, a person or corporation may not apply for an exception to liability and it may be unlimited. This is because anyone can do an activity or action that slightly or seriously harms or injures another person.
Even if we talk about the workplace, the employer may have unlimited liability and punishable by law if he has hired or is supervising the workers of his company in a negligent manner and one of them is injured.
In addition, the exception to liability may be established in cases of force majeure or fortuitous events. It can be established when you are present in an untimely event, which has not been premeditated or planned.
The sole fault of the victim could be grounds for an exception to the
responsibility, when the court determines that the cause of the damage was not at fault, but rather it falls exclusively on the aggrieved person.
