Reaney v University Hospital of North Staffordshire

Damages – Personal injury. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in allowing the defendants' appeal, held that the judge had erred in concluding that the cost of all of the claimant's care and physiotherapy needs should be met by the defendants as their negligence had made the claimant's position materially and significantly worse. The same applied to his decision in relation to accommodation, equipment, transport and holidays. The case was remitted to the judge for him to assess damages in respect of the claimant's heads of loss in the light of the court's judgment.
