AQA law - Proving Negligence

HideShow resource information

1. In Bradford v Robinson Rentals, the claimant suffered frostbite due to a broken car heater... could this be claimed for?

  • Yes... even though frost bite was unforeseeable, it WAS foreseeable that personal injury could occur due to a broken heater
  • No... The claimant owned the car heater and broke it himself by mistake so it was the claimant's own actions resulting in damage - he therefore couldn't claim for it.
  • Yes... Everyone who had driven or been a passenger in that car had suffered frost bite so the damage was therefore foreseeable.
  • No... the type of damage (personal injury) may have been foreseeable, but the specific injury of frost bite wasn't foreseeable so he therefore couldn't claim for it.
