Fulbrook, Julian (2011) Personal injury: contributory negligence - rescuers. Journal of personal injury law, Mar . pp. 19-24. ISSN 1352-7533
Comments on the Queen's Bench Division decision in Tolley v Carr on whether an individual who rescued a woman from a motorway accident but was injured when he returned to her vehicle and attempted to move it as he feared it was a danger to oncoming traffic should have his personal injury damages reduced for contributory negligence. Details the court's review of whether his decision to return to the car was reasonable and discusses the approach of other jurisdictions to granting rescuers immunity from negligence actions.
