Area of law: Personal Injury
Organiser: Spinal Injuries Conference organised by St John’s Chambers
Date: 9th October 2013
Overview: Everyone knows (or think that they know) that a claimant has to prove that a breach of duty caused injury/ loss. In a number of recent cases the court has inferred causation from mere proof of breach of duty. Why? This talk explores the relevant authorities and gives guidance on how to use the courts’ emerging approach to causation.
Downoad notes: Breach of duty and causation:- where are we now?
