CHAPTER 21 - Consumer Protection Law 


You enter into a contract to purchase a snow thrower from Jake's Appliances. On the first large snow of the season you happily pull out your new snow thrower and get to work on your lengthy driveway and sidewalks. After a few feet the machine stops working and you can't get it re-started. You put it back in the garage and commence to shoveling the snow by hand. Midway through the task, you pull your back and end up in the hospital for 7 days. Also, because you don't get your walks shoveled, you are fined by the city. Additionally, after putting the machine in the garage, it's starter shorts, causes sparks and your garage is burned to the ground.

Please answer the following question:

Which damages are due to a breach of contract and which are not? And how do possible tort damages relate to your contract for a snow thrower?
