Details for Falling in Line with the Law

Name:Falling in Line with the Law
Description:by Kris Lines and Jon Heshka

Adults who choose to engage in physical activities which obviously give rise to a degree of unavoidable risk may find that they have no means of recompense if the risk materializes so that they are injured”. With these opening lines, the Court of Appeal reasserted a return to commonsense and traditional legal principles and dispelled the modern myth of a compensation culture in sport. Indeed, such a stance is particularly welcome in activities where the claimant has intentionally sought a risk and which eventuates with ultimately tragic consequences.
