res ipsa loquitur model answer

HideShow resource information

res ipsa loquitur occurs in situations when it is difficult for the C to know exactly what has happened but it seems obvious that the D must hvae been negligent

the phrase means 'the facts speak for themselves'. if res ipsa loquitur applies in a case then the effect is to reverse the burden of proof. normally, BoP is on C but if res ipsa loquitur applies then it will be for the D to prove that they were not negligent rather for C to prove that they were
