Hi everyone, I have one quick question that's been bothering me for a while.



Say I go to a pub, and similarly to the case of Dulieu v White, a horse and cart crash into the pub(unlikely but let's roll with it). Say that I was physically injured by suffering from a broken arm as well as psychiatric harm, how would I go about answering that in an exam/assignment?



Would I do both of them separately and discuss the negligence for the physical damage and whether there was a duty of care/breach/remoteness/causation and once I've established all the elements of physical negligence then discuss the psychiatric injuries? I'm a little confused on how exactly I would answer something like that in an exam/assignment.


Thanks.

You would need to begin with the IRAC structure, identifying the tort, duty breach causation etc. Do each tort separately or you'll get confused/lost.
