Whyte v Bluebird Buses Ltd

Reparation – Personal injury – Liability. Court of Session: In an action by a pursuer who, when an eleven-year-old schoolboy, was struck and injured by the defenders' bus near a bus stop, the court, granting decree for the agreed sum of £8,000 damages on full liability, held that the bus was too close to the kerb, it was negligent to have driven in such a way as to hit someone on the kerb even if he was at the edge, and there was no room for any contributory negligence, especially in view of the pursuer's age.
