Wieland v Cyril Lord Carpets

[1969] 3 All ER 1006

Case summary last updated at 15/01/2020 19:57 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case Wieland v Cyril Lord Carpets

D caused P to have a neck problem and made her feel shaken so that, in addition to her neck-collar, her vision and judgment of space was faulty. She fell down the stairs and sustained further injuries. QBD held that she could claim damages for the second injury as well as the first from D, since the second fall was D’s fault too. 
Evleigh J: If foreseeability is required, it is enough if it is foreseeable that one injury may affect a person's ability to cope with the vicissitudes of life and thereby be the cause of another injury.
