Review of gratuitous services decisions and s.59 CLA

Clement v Backo & Suncorp Metway Insurance Ltd [2007] QCA 81


Further to my earlier posting re: the amendments to the Civil Liability Act 2003 (Qld) reinstating “Sullivan v Gordon damages[1999] NSWCA 338, it is useful to step back and review the above decision, which provides an excellent summary of the principles for this award of damages and the development of Griffiths v Kerkemeyer [1977] HCA 45 through to CSR Ltd v Eddy [2005] HCA 64 and Kriz v King [2006] QCA 351.
