Edmunds v Simmonds

Facts

Where a claimant and defendant involved in a road traffic accident in Spain were both English, and the claimant's major heads of damages arose wholly in England, there were overwhelming factors under s.12(1)(b) Private International Law (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1995 for English law to be the applicable law for determining the issues, notwithstanding that the accident had occurred in Spain and the insurers were Spanish.
