Chopra v Maxwell

 

[2002] QSC 37

SUPREME COURT OF QUEENSLAND

CIVIL JURISDICTION

JONES J

Application No 8 of 2002

RUMMA CHOPRA

Applicant

and

 

PATRICIA ANN MAXWELL

Respondent

CAIRNS

DATE 30/01/2002

JUDGMENT

HIS HONOUR: This is an application by the plaintiff to remove a matter which was commenced in the District Court into the Supreme Court.

The plaintiff was born on the 7th of December 1964 and is therefore 37 years of age. On the 9th of October 1995, she suffered a cerebral vascular accident which has left her, in the opinion of Dr Boyce, totally and permanently disabled. The claim alleges that incident was caused by the negligence of the defendant.

By reason of the plaintiff being totally and permanently disabled she has suffered significant economic loss and would, in the assessment of damages, be likely to achieve a level greatly in excess of the District Court limit. Consequently it is necessary that her claim be removed into the Supreme Court.

I make the orders by consent in terms of the draft initialled by me and placed with the papers.
