Leslie O'Donnell v Lisa Smith and Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance plc [2018] SC Edin 68

A motorcyclist who was injured after crashing into the back of a car which performed an unnecessary "emergency stop" has been awarded nearly £50,000 damages.

A sheriff in the All-Scotland Personal Injury Court ruled that the driver of the vehicle, who braked suddenly because she had become "apprehensive" at the sight of the motorcycle approaching from behind, was entirely at fault for the accident.

Grant Markie of Compass Chambers appeared for the successful pursuer.  A copy of the judgement can be found here.
