Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.It is possible to hold the shop responsible for the damage done on the watch as their actions would have been negligent. It may have been caused by an employee of theirs, even if he did not work to accepted rules or procedures but the shop itself is likely to be held liable under what is known as vicarious liability (where they are liable for the actions of their employees).
Whilst they can be held liable to pay for the necessary repairs, if the delays are genuinely due to the manufacturer then there is little that the shop can do. Their liability is to arrange and pay for the repairs (or carry them out themselves if they can), but if this has to go back to the manufacturer then you cannot hold the hop liable for these delays.
You could ask for details of who is dealing with it at Rotary and try to contact them directly yourself for an update. If the delay is becoming unreasonable then you can press the shop for answers and even advise them that if the matter is not resolved within a given time period you would even consider taking this further to court where you would claim damages against them. That may hopefully prompt them to act quicker and take appropriate steps in resolving this sooner.
