||Court of Appeal, Civil Division
Thorpe and May LJJ
||Colin McCaul QC (instructed by Immanuel & Co) for the claimant.
||Charles Spencer QC and Catherine Foster (instructed by Morgan Cole) for the defendant.

Negligence - Causation - Personal injury - Sufficiency of judge's reasons - Apportionment of liability.
If apportionment was necessary, the court should not be deterred from undertaking apportionment because it was difficult, or because the result was likely to be approximate. In the instant case, although the judge had not dealt with the matter of apportionment at all, the matter would not be remitted as it was clear that the fact that the defendant had caused the single event that had resulted in the claimant's injury was a necessary consequence of the other findings on causation that the judge had made.
