Tutorial Questions 2
Student’s details
Week 6
A) Yes, Egeeay Supermarket should have taken care of Ba
ara and it becomes her duty to take care of her. Law experts say that according to the laws laid down for supermarkets, supermarkets should comply with their duty to customers whether those customers are regular or not. Any occasion that outcomes in harm to clients visiting the store ought to be the obligation of the proprietor and owner of the market.
Any event that happens in the supermarket will be responsible for the owner of the supermarket, as in this case Ba
ara is hurt in the supermarket, then the loss of the supermarket owner must be repaid, Egeeay Supermarket has a duty of care for Ba
The first element in establishing negligence is called the duty of care, and this case study refers to the relationships and circumstances recognized by law, and these are the facts that give rise to the legal duty of care. It can be divided subjectively according to the case study;
· Proper foresight of loss
· A part for closeness, relationship
So Egeeay Supermarket will have to take care of Ba
ara, and it is also included in the supermarket duty while Egeeay Supermarket did not fulfil its duty.
B) Yes, this case study shows that supermarket people have not done their duty well and they have violated the duty. Whatever jury will decide to solve this case, it will see that in this case there is no negligence by the owners and employees of the supermarket that if any part of negligence is found then it will come under
each of duty.
The jury also believes that if the employees of the supermarket did not fulfill their duty properly, then it can be said that this is a
each of duty. If the supermarket had known this before then this phenomenon would not have happened. If the supermarket knew that someone would be hurt by his action, then it is a matter of their duty
Under the law of supermarkets, it is already mandated that a policy of investigation is made in every section of them and it is followed. The law says that the owner or manager of the supermarket must guarantee that every customer in their premises is safe, whether it comes once or regularly. In this case, it has been shown that supermarket employees could not perform their duties well and the customer was hurt.
C) Yes, my answer will definitely change under the condition that is being talked about. In this case, I will definitely follow the two-stage trial of Lord Wilberforce and use it which is as follows:
1. In its first situation, it will be checked whether the damage done was very foresighted and it will also be seen whether there was a proximity relationship between them. If all this is found in it, then the first duty of care can be seen in it. 
2. In this case, the defendant can express the idea of ​​ca
ying forward the negative liability and he can also express policy considerations for it.
And on the basis of these tests, it can be said that the policy adopted by the manager to check the floor every ten minutes was made to take proper care of the customers. Then it will not be considered a violation of the duty of care (Nottage, 2010).
Week 7
In the given scenario, Mr. Brown had purchased a pair of woollen underpants which he had been exposed to after learning about the condition of dermatitis.
