Hey everyone, I have been tasked with representing the appellants in this example case: http://www.mootingnet.org.uk/problems/tort4.pdf

I'm the lead appellant on the first point;

"1. that there is no duty of care to avoid causing psychiatric damage:
a) attached to the negligent infliction of injury to oneself,
b) arising from a particular susceptibility of a plaintiff."

The problem is, I'm totally new to moots (and tort in general) and I'm having a lot of trouble finding relevant cases to argue against these points, any help would be incredibly appreciated.

Thank you! If possible, would you be able to help me further?

I have read Alcock before and the only thing I can remember which relates to my above points is a small part of Lord Ackner's judgement which mentioned that there is no authority with regards to liability for psychiatric injury as a result of injuring oneself.

I'm reading through the other cases now, so if you can't (or don't want to) assist me, then that's fine, I'm sure I'll come up with something. n_n'
