    In Dulieu v White & Sons, the victim was a primary victim as she was was present at the scene and her own safety was compromised. Her apprehension of immediate harm was reasonable in order for her to successfully seek recompense. In other words, the court held a person could sue for psychiatric injury from a reasonable fear or apprehension of harm. However, do note that there have been many cases following Diulieu including Smith v Page, which was seen as a turning point.
