    Crofts v Roche Products Ltd 23 June 1995 CS (0 other reports)

In Crofts v Roche Products Ltd, a firefighter who suffered a back injury while putting out a fire fails to win damages from his employer. The Court of Session holds that, given his training and experience, his employer could not anticipate he would attempt to lift or carry anything that would give rise to a risk of injury.
