Case of Young O'Brien

Post by Karen on Mon 16 Apr 2012 - 0:03


Mr. Justice Bailhache gave judgment, in the King's Bench Division, on Monday, in the case of O'Brien v. the Oceanic Steam Navigation Company (Ltd.). The action was brought by Mrs. O'Brien against the company to recover damages in respect of the loss of her son in the Titanic disaster last year. The jury had found that the navigation of the Titanic was negligent in the matter of speed, but that young O'Brien had sufficient notice of a condition printed at the back of his ticket to the effect that the company would be exempt from liability in the event of any negligence on the part of their servants.
The judge said that in his opinion the contract ticket in this case was not in the form approved by the Board of Trade, as required by the Act, and therefore he gave judgment for Mrs. O'Brien, with costs.
