consumer protection act remedies help watch

    • Thread Starter

    Judith recently purchased a push chair from her local branch of Mothercareless. The item was located in a section of the store which offered cut prices on faulty goods. Judith and the sales person checked the push chair carefully but could find no obvious defect. The day following the purchase, Judith was pushing her son, Jake, in the high road when he fell out of the chair and hit his head on the pavement. The push chair sprang backward, knocking Judith down and causing her physical harm. Judith later learned that the pushchair was one of a limited number produced by a company called The Experiment, all of which had a hidden design defect.
    Advise Judith and Jake as to their remedies under the Consumer Protection Act and/or under the common law related to defective products.

Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
