Patinos Client Wins in Supreme Court Case

Summary: Supreme Court Judge finds Suncorp Insured Driver Liable for Serious Injuries in Motor Vehicle Accident

In a Judgement handed down on 30 January 2008 His Honour Justice Daubney rejected the evidence of a Suncorp Insured Driver, finding her negligent for the injuries sustained by David Hawira, who was represented by Patinos Personal Lawyers.

Michelle Connolly alleged that David Hawira grabbed the steering wheel of the vehicle causing a collision.  The Judge rejected that evidence, believing Mr Hawira that he did not do so.

The Judgment is also important, however, in noting how a Court will reduce the amount of damages an injured person receives if they do not wear a seatbelt and/or accept a lift from an intoxicated driver.
