Podesta v Akhtar and another

Personal injuries – Road traffic accident. The first defendant had failed to exercise the standard of care to be expected of a reasonable driver, so that he had been negligent when he had struck the claimant with his car. The Queen's Bench Division further held that the fair and equitable share of the claimant's blame was 30%, as there had been no sudden movement into the path of an oncoming vehicle.
