Insight 196: The PI Update

Welcome to this week’s edition of Insight in which we report on the liability decision of the High Court for injuries sustained by a child when hit by a vehicle, reminding us that:

  • claimants do actually have to prove liability;
  • there is a methodical way to arrive at a reasoned view as to the most probable explanation;
  • honest witnesses can be, and are frequently mistaken;
  • contemporary accounts given by witnesses are usually preferred to later versions.
