Judgement for the case Corr v IBC Vehicles Ltd

D was employed by P who negligently allowed an accident to occur whereby D was struck on the head and suffered depression and ultimately committed suicide as a result. HL allowed her clam, stating that P’s suicide was a “direct and foreseeable consequence” of the act of negligence, despite being a conscious decision. 
 
Lord Bingham: “There can be no recovery for damage which was not reasonably foreseeable.”
