Tate v Ryder Holdings Ltd and another

Damages – Personal injury. The claimant had sustained a severe brain injury when he was 11 years of age. Liability was apportioned 30:70. The issue of quantum was to be decided. The Queen's Bench Division held that the claimant's condition had resulted from the organic brain injury, and could only reasonably be treated by a regime of 24-hour personalised care. He was to be awarded damages under the various usual heads of damage on that basis.
