*Flint v Tittensor and another

Tort – Assault and battery. There was a claim before the court arising out of the serious injuries suffered by the claimant as a result of an incident where the claimant was thrown from the bonnet of a moving car driven by the first defendant. The first defendant had then fled the scene. The Queen's Bench Division allowed the claim finding that on the evidence, the claimant had proved that he had been injured by the first defendant's deliberate acts in first driving a very short distance towards him and causing him to end up on the bonnet, then secondly carrying him on the bonnet backwards and forwards and finally steering the car causing him to be thrown off the bonnet.
