Produced by BenchTV, this video explores some of the key facts and findings of the case, bringing to light an important discussion about the duty of care requirement. In particular, the judgment discusses the requirements for establishing both non-delegable and ordinary duties of care,  the meaning of “physical damage to property” when assessing ordinary duty of care, and the importance of proper and precise pleadings.
