SH v Care Visions Group Ltd  SC EDIN 28
Grant Markie acted for the successful pursuer in this action where a former employee sued her employer as a result of an assault committed by a child in her care. The pursuer’s employers were found to be vicariously liable for the failures of other employees in not de-escalating the situation and preventing the child from re-entering a room once threats of violence had been made towards the pursuer. Damages were agreed at £12,000 and, despite arguing that the pursuer had been contributorily negligent, no finding in that respect was made.
