BEN WOODHAM v JM TURNER

 

A coach driver was found to be 70 percent liable for injuries to a motorcyclist incurred during a collision at a junction due to the coach driver’s view of oncoming traffic being obstructed. It was held that she should have waited for a safer opportunity to emerge. The motorcyclist was also contributory negligent by 30 percent, as the risk of a vehicle emerging was obvious and foreseeable to any reasonable motorcyclist.
