Personal Injury

Cases Citation

[2018] EWHC 1111 (QB)

Represented the defendant shopkeeper, who was held liable to contribute one third to the damages payable by the manufacturer of caustic soda bottles on grounds that it was negligent to display the product on a shelf accessible to young children, when the label on the bottle contained a warning that the contents could cause severe burns and that the bottle should be kept out of the reach of children.

The claimant, aged two-and-a-half, had picked up the bottle in the shop, removed the defective child-resistant cap and put some of the contents into his mouth, and as a consequence suffered serious injuries.
