Foundations of Law
Taha, a Spanish female, is employed as a receptionist for a large accountancy firm, Pitcher and Co. She has worked there for 6 years. On her lunch break, Taha visits the canteen. Rob is employed as a cook in the canteen. As he carries a large pot of hot soup across the canteen he is listening to music on his MP3 player and fails to see Taha standing in front of him. As a result of his distraction, he accidentally bumps into Taha and pours the hot soup over her. An ambulance is called and she is rushed to hospital with severe burns to her face and body.
Mike, a client at Pitcher and Co. visits Rupert, an accountant at the firm, to arrange an audit of his accounts. Once this has been set up and a contract has been signed for this service, Rupert escorts Mike to the exit of the building. On his way out, Mike asks Rupert for some advice about a loan he wishes to take out to start up a new business. Rupert recommends MoneyQuick, claiming that they offer the lowest interest rates in the town. Based upon this advice, Mike takes out a loan with MoneyQuick. He is now paying excessively high interest rates and cannot keep up with the payments.
