Holt v Holroyd Meek Ltd: CA 17 Jan 2002

The defendant sought leave to appeal against findings as to liability and quantum in an action for personal injuries. The claimant was an agency worker at a petrol station. She slipped on spilled fuel. The judge found the floor slippy from a mixture of diesel and water. The defendant appealed saying the judge had found on a basis not put forward by the claimant.
Held: There was sufficient weight in the argument to allow the appeal to go ahead.
