Siegel v Pummell

Damages – Personal injury. The defendant's car struck the claimant's vehicle from behind when the claimant was stationary at traffic lights. Liability was conceded but the parties were fundamentally at odds on the issue of quantum. The Queen's Bench Division held that the claimant had proved that his symptoms had been caused by a brain injury and not by psychological cause and it was on that basis that the various heads of damages would be assessed.
