Tashan Gabriel v Kirklees Metropolitan Council  EWCA
Occupiers Liability case where Kirklees Council breached its duty of care to a little boy who was injured in the eye whilst walking past a building site
In this case against the Police, a pedestrian was knocked to the ground by police officers in Huddersfield Town Centre as they arrested a suspect. The Court of Appeal held that that there was no duty of care owed to Mrs Robinson but on appeal the Supreme Court held that they were negligent and the case of Caparo v Dickman did not apply to all claims in negligence. This was a ground-breaking case and changed the law for negligence claims and meant a change in police procedure. Robinson is considered an unequivocal endorsement of the proposition that public authorities face the same test for common law duty of care as any other entity, rather than enduring higher or more lenient standard
Child Claim: Catastrophic brain injury claim
Claim finalised for £5.5 million.
Needs 24-hour care
In this case the child suffered a very severe injury to their brain in a road traffic accident which resulted in extensive and severe learning disabilities, a spastic tetraparesis, and right-sided hemiparesis.
The injuries were so serious that the child would not work nor be capable of independent living or managing their affairs.
