Johnson v Warburtons Ltd

Negligence – Duty to take care. The claimant lorry driver issued proceedings against his employer after suffering injury in descending the lorry's steps. The judge dismissed his claim and the claimant appealed. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the appeal, held that the judge had not erred in finding that the steps had not been inherently dangerous and that no training was needed because the need to take care was obvious.
