Davies (a protected person by his litigation friend) v Walon Ltd

Negligence – Causation. A brain injury, which the claimant HGV transporter driver had allegedly sustained in the course of his employment with the defendant company while securing a vehicle on to the top deck of a trailer, had not been caused by any sudden drop of the trailer deck, as contended. Accordingly, the Queen's Bench Division, in dismissing the claim, held that no question of negligence on the part of the defendant arose.
