3. Trusts: Trusts are also an exception. Trusts can be enforced to a 3rd party provided they fulfil the requirements of that trust. The conditions that may be placed on a trust include age; education and marriage.

CASE: "Lockett v Charles". In this case the claimant took his wife to a restaurant who got food poisoning. HELD: husband was acting as the wife's agent ... she can sue.
5. Statutes: Some statutes (i.e. Acts of Parliament) can give 3rd party rights. The relevant statue however, is "The Road and Traffic Act 1998" which ensures a motorist to take out 3rd party insurance. This is to protect 3rd partis in the unlikely event of an accident.
- Life Insurance: Is made for the benefit of the 3rd parties involved.
