Doing business without order or authority

Doing business without an order means carrying out the transactions of another person, whether legal or material, without order or authority, but on account of the one otherwise normally engaged in them, and for the purpose of protecting that person’s interests.

Doing other person’s business without invitation is permissible only should the transaction need to be carried out without delay, because of possible immediate danger of damage or loss of an obvious benefit.

Liability for another means responsibility for the damage and the person responsible for another, and tort-feasor, except in cases when the damage is caused by a person who, due to mental illness or retarded mental development, or for some other reasons, is not mentally competent or by a child of up to seven years of age.

Tort-feasor shall be responsible in accordance with the principle of fault, because it is a responsibility for its own actions. Continue reading Liability for another
