Legal Question in Personal Injury in Texas

3. A tree falls in the forest and no one is around. But, soon after, your client, Back to Nature, Inc., takes a group of tourist on a hiking trip through the forest. They carefully step over the tree, but the last tourist, an obviously out-of-shape dentist from the city, canít make it over. He trips and falls, breaking his leg. Is your client liable? Now, if you give me a yes or no answer you will fail.

Should be a group of tourists. If the group carefully step over the tree, then the last tourist was not in the group or did not get tripped by the tree. It's not clear whether the tree caused his trip and fall. So, there's insufficient information to say whether he fell while with my client or not.
