The essay question



UNIT 2: THE LAW OF CONTRACT

ASSIGNMENT No: 3

(a) Mogul Petrol Co. Plc has a chain of petrol stations in the South East of England. The Company has recently installed automatic car washes at ten of their sites. Placed prominently at the  start-machine of each car wash is a Notice as follows:-

Disclaimer Notice

Please note that we do not accept responsibility for any injury, loss or damage of whatsoever nature and howsoever caused arising directly or indirectly out of the use of this machine or these premises

























Last week one of the petrol station Managers submitted the following Report to Head Office:

 ....... a customer came into the shop and purchased a token for the car wash. He then drove into the car wash area and pulled up by the start machine. He apparently inserted his token into the machine, but nothing happened. He then got out of his car to investigate. For some unknown reason the rollers of the car wash machine had come to a halt halfway through a wash cycle and were positioned at the back of the car wash. I understand that the customer banged the start machine because nothing was happening, when the car wash suddenly started. One of the top brush rollers that was positioned above the car was loose and fell onto the car, bounced off and hit the customer. The damage to the car is estimated at around £1500 and the customer suffered a fractured skull and broken arm, extensive bruising and shock.


An examination of the car wash after the accident revealed that two of the retaining bolts on the top roller had worked loose thus allowing the roller to fall. The customer has threatened legal action for damages but I have told his Solicitors that the Company is under no liability in view of our Disclaimer Notice displayed quite clearly at the car was machine .


Discuss the Company s liability (if any) for this accident



(b) When will the Court imply terms into a contract?



(c) Fred bought three cases of apples from a wholesaler for resale in his greengrocery store. When he purchased the fruit the contract contained a term which excluded All liability of the seller for breach of conditions implied by statute, common law or otherwise”. When Fred offered the apples for sale in his shop he placed the same notice on the box in which the apples were displayed.

That morning Jane bought two apples from Fred to eat at lunchtime. When she bit into the apples they were rotten and inedible. Fred has now discovered that all the apples in the box he purchased are equally as bad.

(i) Advise Fred whether he can bring any legal action against his supplier.
