QUESTION:
At an awards night, Simon won a prize of $25,000. In his acceptance speech he thanked the donor and expressed the wish to use the money to allow him to devote himself to improving his hockey skills over the next two years, to an international level. During the function, Philippa, an accounting lecturer, approached Simon and told him she could help him. Simon was interested in what she had to say, although it was noticeable that Philippa had consumed alcohol. She had no hesitation in recommending Simon invest all his money in shares in a new company, High Flyers Ltd, whose disclosure documents Philippa had recently received. Simon voiced some concerns in that he knew nothing about shares, but he did know that leaving the money in a bank account would probably not generate enough money on which to live for the next two years (food, accommodation, etc). Philippa said that she was an expert, that he could trust her, and to give her a call the next day for more details. The next day Simon followed Philippas advice and spent the money on purchasing the shares in High Flyers Ltd, without phoning her back as he had misplaced her business card.
Confident he was financially secure, Simon and his friend, Peter, went to Springfield National Park to undertake a bush walk. Recently a creek had been rerouted and there was a notice posted by the Park Rangers stating they were undertaking an environmental study of the effect on established trees where their roots were now submerged under the rerouted creek. It was a windy day when Simon and Peter went to the Park. They were swimming in a popular swimming hole when a four-wheel drive vehicle, driven by Jacob, bumped a tree that had its roots in the water. The tree fell on Peter who suffered very serious injuries.
Simon felt he was an extremely lucky guy so decided to have a small party. He went to the liquor shop to buy some alcohol. The bottles he wanted were on the top shelf. He had to stretch to reach the first and second bottles, which he placed in his trolley, but probably overstretched to reach the third bottle. Just as he was taking the third bottle off the shelf his footing slipped and he fell over. As he hit the ground the third bottle smashed and cut his hand. Unfortunately the cut has damaged nerves in his hand such that he will never have the skills which could have made him a great hockey player.
On his way home from the hospital, after treatment for his hand, Simon heard on the radio that High Flyers Ltd had been placed into liquidation. He has lost his money.
Advise Simon and Peter fully of their chances of pursuing negligence claims.
