Negligence - Causation - Road traffic accident - Fatal accident - Judge finding that claimant not to blame for accident - Judge finding deceased wholly responsible for accident - Correctness of decision.
In the instant case, the judge had erred in finding that the claimant had not been responsible for a road traffic accident where he had collided with and killed a pedestrian, but that the accident had been the pedestrian's fault alone. The claimant's claim for damages for personal injury would accordingly be dismissed, and the counterclaim of the defendant, the widow of the deceased pedestrian, would succeed.
