3.The State of Indiana hired Mogul Construction Company to repair a 10-mile stretch of highway. Part of the job was to repair a bridge over a river. Mogul subcontracted this job to Wonder Construction Company. The repair of a bridge is a fairly dangerous activity that requires special precautions to keep automobile accidents from occurring. One of these precautions was to devise safe procedures for getting automobiles over the bridge while still getting the repair work done. Mogul did not tell Wonder exactly how to proceed or supervise how it did the job. Instead, the job was Wonder’s to do as it saw fit.Unfortunately, Wonder’s standards of fitness evidently weren’t too high. One-night, 10 cars went off the bridge and into the river because the signs Wonder used to direct them around the construction work were incorrectly posted. Because Wonder had too few assets, the various plaintiffs sued Mogul as well as Wonder.Assuming that Wonder Construction Company is an independent contractor, under what theory or theories might Mogul be liable?
