Gray v Botwright

Negligence – Traffic signal. The proceedings concerned an appeal as to liability and quantum against the dismissal of a claim in negligence, in respect of a road traffic collision, on the basis of, inter alia, a finding that the coincidence of location fallacy applied. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in allowing the claimant's appeal as to liability, held that the claimant's case had not rested on the coincidence of location argument and liability would be apportioned 50:50. The appeal as to quantum would be dismissed.
