Pollock v Cahill and another

Negligence – Duty to take care. The claimant, who was blind, fell from an open second floor window at the home of the defendants. As a result, he sustained spinal and brain injuries. The claimant brought proceedings against the defendants. The Queen's Bench Division held that, on the evidence, the claimant had proved that his injury had been caused by a breach of duty on the part of the defendants. Accordingly, judgment was given for the claimant on the issue of liability.
