Further to my earlier posting, I refer you to the appeal: Amaca Pty Ltd v Hicks [2011] NSWCA 295. The main issues were the late admission of the report of Professor Breslin and gratuitous care pursuant to s 15 of the Civil Liability Act 2002 (NSW), which provides for the maximum amount of damages that may be awarded for gratuitous domestic assistance. However, of interest for Queensland practitioners is the election not to appeal General Damages (150,000.00).
