Question 2

Elizabeth is very interested in interior design and has for the last three years visited the annual “Showcase Fashion Show” (SFS).

Tickets are purchased via the SFS website which contains the terms and conditions of purchase. Purchasers are asked to agree to the terms and conditions by selecting the ‘agree’ button before being able to progress to the purchase page. The terms and conditions are very lengthy, so Elizabeth selects the agree button without reading.

After looking at the exhibition for a few hours, Elizabeth decides to purchase a soft drink from the cafeteria and have a rest.

Elizabeth purchases her soft drink and as she sits down on a chair it collapses, due to the nuts and bolts holding the chair together being loose and not tightened sufficiently, when they were constructed by SFS’s operatives. The collapsing chair causes Elizabeth to crash to the ground.

As a result of the fall, Elizabeth fractures her wrist and smashes her new mobile phone.

Elizabeth is taken to the local hospital where her wrist is put in plaster. She is unable to go to work for 10 weeks.

Elizabeth contacted SFS to complain about the incident and to advise them that she will be starting legal proceedings against them.

SFS refer her to the following term which was on their website:

“Showcase Fashion Show accepts no liability for death, injury, loss or damage, howsoever caused.

Advise Elizabeth of any contractual claim she may have. Illustrate your answer with reference to case law and statute.
