Dan Crowe – Steed v McDougall

A good result for the plaintiff in Steed v McDougall [2019] ACTSC 36 represented by Anthony Black SC and Dan Crowe of Key Chambers. A useful reminder that the duties a driver owes to other road users must contemplate the possibility of their carelessness, and an illustration of the close analysis of facts required to find proportion, balance and relative emphasis in assessing contributory negligence.
