They are also liable for replacement of the faulty blu-ray player purchased by Bob from them although more than 3 days have passed after the purchase.
Reckless Department Store is just what their name expounds – it is reckless. One cannot do business in a reckless manner. The removal of the lower guard rails on the stairwell despite many complaints from customers was responsible for Lassie’s death. The fracturing of Bob’s skull due to the barrier’s crash on the car’s roof was also the fault of Reckless Department Store because the car park was handled or mishandled by them. Finally, the malfunction of the blu-ray player must be set right by Reckless Department Store because they cannot count the number of days Bob spent in the hospital for the purpose of the sale contract (Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977, p1).
Actually, Erewhon Police Service must take the initiative in handling all the three cases. This is because of Reckless Department Store’s negligence that the mishaps have occurred. Reckless’ irresponsible behavior resulted in the loss of their dog, and loss of manpower as Bob could not report for duty during his time at the hospital.
The three cases must be handed to a legal expert who will be able to interpret the laws to their logical conclusions. Reckless Department Store is misinterpreting laws to its own benefits. First of all, Reckless must have closed operation or relocated elsewhere while renovation work was going on. By not keeping business closed due to renovation, Reckless was exposing customers to myriad risks and dangers.
Reckless must be taken to task sufficiently so that it sends the clear message for Department Store and other businesses to close operation or relocate while renovation is in progress in their own premises. Otherwise it will become easy for others to carry on business in similar circumstances and throw up their hands when faced with litigations for accidents and losses
