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.

Chris Kennedy QC  Matthew Snarr

Chris Kennedy QC and Matthew Snarr were instructed by Keoghs LLP to represent the Respondent.
