Question: Angela was visiting her friend Betsy. She complained of a severe headache and Betsy gave her a box of painkillers that had been prescribed by her (Betsy’s) doctor. On the outside of the box and on a leaflet inside, there was a note reading: “Do not consume with alcohol. May cause severe nausea and diarrhoea.” Angela had drunk two small glasses of wine. She took two of the painkillers (the recommended dose for an adult). An hour later she became violently ill and was admitted to the Downbeat Hospital. She was examined by Conrad, a doctor, and told him about the pills she had taken. Conrad arranged for her to be admitted and prescribed a drug to treat her condition. Daphne, the nurse on duty, misread the doctor’s notes and gave her only 10 per cent of the dosage that Conrad prescribed. Angela became more seriously ill and required painful and debilitating abdominal surgery. There is a strong possibility that, if she had been given the correct dosage, she would have recovered after a few days.

It has now been established that Angela suffered from an extremely rare allergy to one of the ingredients of the painkillers. No other case has been identified where a person taking one of these painkillers suffered a comparable reaction. It cannot be established whether the wine had contributed to the reaction.

Advise Angela as to any claims in negligence against the Downbeat Hospital.

Answer: The above question demands discussion whether Betsy (B), Conrad (C) and Daphne (D) had breached duty of care to Angela (A) and whether there is any intervening factor that is likely to...

Question: Answer the following problem question:

Potsdam Mansion is a hotel and conference centre owned and operated by Potsdam Mansion Hotels Ltd. The manager is William.

Frederick is employed as a part-time gardener and handyman by Potsdam Mansion for two days a week, for which he is paid £200 per week, after deductions for tax and National Insurance. He is often asked to work extra days to carry out specific tasks and he is paid a daily rate of £100 per day gross for this extra work. Last month William asked Frederick to reduce the height of three leylandii trees in the grounds by nine feet. The trees were about twenty-seven feet tall. This was an extra job, expected to last one day. Frederick decided to carry out the job using a ladder resting, unsecured, against each tree while he worked. This was a dangerous thing to do, and he fell, injuring himself very severely.

When their regular hotel receptionist went on maternity leave three years ago, Potsdam Mansion approached the Cheap & Cheerful Recruitment Agency Ltd (Cheap & Cheerful) to find them a temporary receptionist. Cheap & Cheerful sent along Elizabeth, who has worked there ever since as the original receptionist decided not to return to work after having her baby. For three years Elizabeth has had a contract with Cheap & Cheerful stating, among other things:

(a) That she is not an employee of Cheap & Cheerful;

(b) That she must obey all reasonable instructions of the client as if she were the client’s employee; and

(c) That she has no obligation to accept any position offered to her by Cheap & Cheerful, however, if she refuses, they will terminate their arrangement with her.

Each week, Elizabeth gets William to sign a worksheet confirming that she has worked her required hours, and she presents that to Cheap & Cheerful, who pay her a week in arrears. Cheap & Cheerful then invoice Potsdam Mansion for that sum plus their 12% agency fee. Potsdam Mansion has now decided it would be cheaper to employ a receptionist directly and told Cheap & Cheerful that Elizabeth’s services were no longer required.

Although Potsdam Mansion employs six permanent staff to wait at table in the restaurant, when they have large functions on they require additional staff. William has a list of forty local workers who he can call on as casual waiters when needed. Henry is among these, and during the three years he has worked for them on average for one day a week, although this means that in some weeks he has worked on two or three consecutive days and in other weeks he has done no work at all. Henry recently had an argument with William over his pay, as a result of which William told Henry that he would get no more work at the hotel.

Advise Potsdam Mansion Hotels Ltd as to whether or not it could liable to Frederick, Elizabeth and Henry on the basis that they are employees of the company.

[NB – YOU ARE ONLY EXPECTED TO CONSIDER THE ISSUE OF FREDERICK, ELIZABETH AND HENRY’S EMPLOYMENT STATUS, NOT WHETHER THEIR CLAIMS WOULD BE LIKELY TO SUCCEED.]

Question: Aquafun Co is looking to purchase a new swimming pool complex to expand its operations into South West England. After a long search, a complex built in 1970, owned by Waterplanet, is found. Aquafun is particularly anxious that the council has no plans to develop or purchase the land adjoining the complex, and Waterplanet assures Aquafun that the council has no such plans. Aquafun hires a private inspector to examine the premises and the inspector finds no problems.

After the property is purchased, the city building inspector sees that the water pipes are completely rusted and will have to be replaced. Waterplanet was aware of this. Aquafun also learns that the council has plans to develop a waste treatment plant in the land adjoining the complex, and that Waterplanet was aware of these plans.
