Jones v University of Warwick [2003] PIQR. P23, CA

23 March 2007

Ms J injured her hand and wrist in the course of her employment. The employers admitted liability but they did not accept that Ms J had the continuing disability which she alleged. The employers sought to rely on the evidence of two video films recorded in Ms J’s home, unknown to her, by an inquiry agent disguised as a market researcher. Expert witnesses acting for Ms J took the view that she still had a continuing disability but the content of the films could be explained because the extent of her disability varied.
