“I’ve had clients with cat­a­strophic in­juries and some­times the most de­bil­i­tat­ing part of the in­ci­dent is the psy­cho­log­i­cal in­jury.”

Lawyers have ar­gued the coun­cil owed “the plain­tiff a duty to ex­er­cise rea­son­able care to avoid risk of in­jury”.

A Cairns Re­gional Coun­cil spokes­woman said it was “not ap­pro­pri­ate for the coun­cil to com­ment on this mat­ter”.
