Mr J was working in a team collecting advertising signs to store them for the winter. Mr J and a colleague each sat on a pile of signs on the back of a flat bed truck when the signs he was sitting on became unstable and flew upwards. Mr J was thrown to the ground and, as a result, he suffered multiple catastrophic injuries including a severe and permanent disabling brain injury.
Primary liability was admitted but issues were raised that Mr J had contributed towards his injuries. These allegations were denied and the case proceeded to a split trial on liability where the Judge held the Defendant was 100% responsible for Mr J’s accident.
