BUSINESS LAW[Document subtitle]
1Answer 1: Issue- The issue in this situation was that the owner of the art gallery was threatened by one of the visitor i.e. Poppy as she wanted to purchase the painting but according to the owner the painting was not for sale and Poopy threatened the owner that she would sue him if he does not sell that painting. Further, the another was that Asad who was the owner of the art gallery purchased the window lighting from the Lovely Lighting Ltd. and he wanted to purchase a sign which contains the name of the gallery i.e. ‘Artybarti' with the flashing red light. He signed the agreement without reading it, and as a result, the spelling was incorrect on the sign and further when it was lighted it caught fire and damaged the paintings which were kept in the art gallery. Moreover, it was written in the agreement that the Lovely Lighting Ltd. would not accept any liability once the goods are supplied.Law- According to the law, the contractual liability safeguards the insured from the event where the loss occurs, and it is being assumed that he is implied under the written agreement or contract(August et al., 2009). Despite it was written in the agreement that the Lovely Lighting Ltd. will not be liable to any damage which is caused by the goods after they are delivered, the contractualliability will help Asad in order to claim against the company to recover the damage (Barnard, C.2012). Further, Asad can claim the contractual liability insurance against the company in order tomake it liable. The sign was not safe to use as the window lighting, and it caught fire and damaged the painting and other things in the art gallery.The company is liable because it is the responsibility of the insured if the property gets damaged because of the fire. And Asad can recover his money from the company. According to the consumer protection act, the consumers are legally safeguarded against damage and injury which
2are caused by defective goods. In this case, Asad can use this act in order to claim against the company as they delivered defective sign because when it was lighted, it caught fire and moreover there was a spelling mistake in the sign. Asad can seek money as the compensation because as per the law the supplier, distributors, manufacturers cannot sell damage products and services to the consumers and if they fail to provide appropriate and safe products, then they will be liable to the criminal action (Ben-Shahar, O. 2004). As per the law, the person whose productsare damaged due to any of the reason can claim against the supplier whether the product is purchased or borrowed for some time (Wilcox, K. C., & Youngsmith, D. M. 2015).Therefore, Asad can claim the contractual liability insurance in order to claim the company and get compensated for the damage which was caused because of the defective products.Asad’s potential liability to Poppy is that he should not be afraid of the threatening as Poppy cannot sue him because he was not selling his painting as it was not for the sale purpose. The idea of sue is illegal in this case as Poppy doesn’t have any right and evidence as per the law in order to threaten to sue the owner of the art gallery because he was not selling the painting (Lareau et al., 2015). Asad should not take Poppy seriously as he has not done anything wrong and if in case she will file lawsuit against him then he will be having more chances to claim her and make her liable as the painting was not for sale, and there were various other paintings in thegallery which she could have purchased and instead all those paintings she wanted the one whichwas not for sale. If the Poppy sues the owner of the art gallery, then she will hold liable.Answer 2: Issue- The issue in the situation was that Jasmine was crossing the street on her bicycle and the bus driver Joe after overtaking her stopped their in order to take the passengers and when the Jasmine was crossing the road the bus was pulled without showing any signal, and as a result
