Summers v The City and County of Cardiff

Negligence – Limitation of action. The Queen's Bench Division held that the claimant had suffered from a symptomatic asbestos-related condition from 2000. That that was when his cause of action had arisen and he first had knowledge that his injury was significant then. Consequently, the limitation period applicable under s 11(4) had expired well before 2011 and therefore his claim failed.
