Question: Norman, a model, has been losing his hair, a matter which concerns him greatly. He reads an advertisement in a men’s magazine which states:
‘Thinning hair? Receding hair? Worry no more for an easy lotion is now available: Dynamic Hair Growth – a new lotion made by the Dynamic Hair Growth Company. The use of the
Dynamic Hair Growth lotion will not only halt hair loss, it will reverse this process and restore any hair already lost. Simply use Dynamic Hair Growth three times daily, in accordance with
the instructions, for two months and see the results. A full head of hair or we will provide you with £1,000.’
The advertisement also states, in small print below the bold statement, ‘see our website for further information’. Norman does not check the website which provides a long list of medical conditions which will prevent the Dynamic lotion from properly working.
Norman purchases the Dynamic Hair Growth lotion from Easy Chemists, where the sales assistant informs him that the lotion has done wonders for her husband’s hair. Norman uses the lotion in accordance with the instructions for two months.
At the end of the two months, Norman is completely bald. When he contacts the Dynamic Hair Growth Company, their doctor examines him. Based on this examination, Dynamic inform him that the baldness is due to a rare medical condition. Norman, now no longer able to work as a model, becomes despondent.

Question: Jesse is considering buying his aunt Karen’s house as an investment. During the negotiations, Karen states, “This house is worth £200,000 and I’ve had two separate valuations from estate agents verifying that, but since I love you so much I’ll sell it to you for £180,000.” Karen has not received any valuations from estate agents and the house is worth only £120,000. Jesse buys the house for £180,000.
Two weeks after Jesse has completed the sale and moved into the house, he discovers that Karen did not receive any valuations from estate agents. The same week, Jesse discovers that the value of the house has been reduced to £80,000 due to serious damage caused by the collapse of a supporting wall. At this point, a buyer offers £80,000 for the house. Jesse does not sell the house until three months later, when Jesse only receives £75,000 for the house because of a general fall of the property market.

Question: Problem scenario: Molly is a single mother. She takes her daughter Rhonda (a two year old infant) to a local playground. While lighting a cigarette, Molly starts talking with another young parent, Dilbert. Molly is distracted by Dilbert's good looks and gritty charm. Meanwhile, Rhonda starts to wander over to the road.
Dilbert notices a possible catastrophe and rushes out after Rhonda. Dilbert just manages to save Rhonda from being run over by Bob, who is driving a van within the speed limit and quite safely. However, Dilbert has too much forward momentum and collides with Bob's van. Dilbert is seriously injured. Bob skids off the road and crashes into some playground equipment. Luckily, no children are using the equipment.
Laura, driving at speed behind Bob sees the above-related events and put her foot down hard on the brakes. Laura's car skids on an oil slick and crashes into a tree. Some distance behind the tree was Leonard. Leonard thought that Laura's car might hit him and he started running away screaming 'oh Lord, don't take me now!' Leonard has an underlying personality disorder and develops a paranoid fear of going out into the street. As a result he loses his job and his livelihood.
The accident involving Leonard is witnessed by Sherry, Rhonda's grandmother, who is also at the park. Sherry suffers from a brief fright, but believes that she will be alright. However, she later develops post-dramatic stress disorder as a result of this event, combined with the news that Rhonda barely escaped serious injury. She had not seen the incident involving Rhonda herself because she hadn't busy setting out the picnic lunch.
