IN THE COURTS… 1911…
COURT CASE ROBERT WALKER 1147 ARGYLE STREET AND WILLIAM J McCREADIE 68 ELDERSLIE STREET FOR £300 DAMAGES OF INJURIES BY A TAXI CAB. Robert Walker wine and spirit merchant 1147 Argyle Street against William J McCreadie 68 Elderslie Street for £300 damages, in respect of personal injury. In May 1911 the pursuer was crossing Argyle Street when he was knocked down and seriously injured by a taxi cab belonging to the defendant. The pursuer said that had the driver of the cab entered Argyle Street at a moderate rate of speed and given warning of his approach the accident would not have happened. Further he failed to keep a proper look out and to have his car under proper control. The defender denied fault and pleaded contributory negligence. The jury after an absence of 50 min returned with an unanimous verdict of the pursuer and assessed the damages of £130.
