Vuyo is a 75 year old male. He recently recovered from a motor vehicle accident in which he, amongst other things, broke his legs. After the plaster had been removed, he approaches Freddy, a physiotherapist. During Vuyo’s first session with Freddy, Freddy picks him up from his wheelchair whilst adjusting the bed and causes Vuyo to fall and suffer serious injuries. Vuyo wants to institute a claim against Freddy for his medical expenses in this regard.
In our example, Freddy was negligent.
