A company, Fyreflies, has a contract with a professional football club to provide a short fireworks display before the start of each game. Eleven rockets, one for each player of the home side and in the club colours are remotely detonated just before the players emerge from the tunnel. During a recent game one of the rockets has been placed incorrectly and when the fireworks are detonated this rocket, instead of going into the air, shoots parallel with the ground and directly into the crowd. It hits George in the face causing him severe facial burns and also injuring his left eye. The rocket also narrowly misses George’s son, Euan, who is sitting beside George. Euan now has an unnatural phobia about being in sports stadia and as a result is unable to attend any sporting contest.Dalvinder, a St Johns Ambulance first aid officer, tends to George until the ambulance arrives to take him to the hospital. Dalvinder is so shocked by the extent of George’s injuries that he suffers from post traumatic stress disorderGeorge is taken to Healiborough Hospital where a junior doctor puts him on a course of antibiotics because of the risk of infection to George’s injuries. The junior doctor does not ask whether George is allergic to antibiotics. In fact George does have such an allergy and suffers a severe reaction and is in a critical condition for several days so that it is impossible for doctors to operate on his injured eye until one week after the initial injury. Despite the operation George loses the sight in the eye. Later medical tests reveal that if the eye had been operated on immediately George would have had a 40% chance of keeping the sight in the eye.1) Advise George of any claim that he may make against Fyreflies for his injuries.2) Advise George of any claim that he may make against Healiborough Hospital for the allergic reaction and for the loss of sight in his left eye3) Advise Euan of any claim that he may make against Fyreflies for his psychiatric injury.4) Advise Dalvinder of any claim that he may make against Fyreflies for his psychiatric injury.
