WALLESS Successfully Represented the Client, Proving that the Seller is not Liable for Damages of €500K

2021 03 24

WALLESS is pleased to have proven that the client—the seller—is not liable for damage allegedly caused by the defective item.

In this case, the manufacturer’s and the seller’s statutory and contractual warranties were analyzed. The essence of the case revolved around the seller’s civil liability for consequential damage – when a defective item causes damage to another item. Can the seller limit his liability for consequential damage? How is such contractual provision related to the duties resulting from the seller’s guarantee?

The legal relationship is often more manifold than the text of the procedural decision. Hence, the most interesting and complex aspects of the case do not always fall into it.

WALLESS partner Simona Drukteinienė and senior associate Simona Bumblauskytė-Kiauleikienė worked on the case.
