The Court of Appeal hand down judgment in Campbell v Advantage Insurance [2021]

On 15 November 2021 the Court of Appeal handed down judgment in the case of Lyum Campbell v Advantage Insurance Co Ltd [2021] EWCA Civ 1698.

The Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal against a finding of contributory negligence in the trial judgment, deciding that the test for whether there is contributory negligence on the part of a Claimant in accepting a lift from a drunk driver is an objective one and that Owens v Brimmell [1977] QB 859 is good law but it does not restrict the application of the objective test.
