Woman ‘cat­a­pulted’ out of bed dur­ing sex loses dam­ages bid

Daily Mail - - News - Daily Mail Re­porter

A WOMAN left paral­ysed af­ter be­ing ‘cat­a­pulted’ from her new bed dur­ing sex has lost her seven-fig­ure claim for dam­ages against the bed sup­plier.

Claire Busby, 46, was in­jured when she fell from the su­per king-size dou­ble di­van as she changed po­si­tion.

Miss Busby, of Maiden­head, Berk­shire, claimed the bed was ‘de­fec­tive’ and took le­gal ac­tion against the Berk­shire Bed Com­pany.

But, re­ject­ing her case at the High Court yes­ter­day, Judge Barry Cot­ter found the bed was ‘not de­fec­tive’ and her fall was a ‘tragic ac­ci­dent’.

The court had heard that Miss Busby was in­jured in Au­gust 2013 while hav­ing sex with John Mar­shall, 55.

She told the court she was kneel­ing in the mid­dle of the bed per­form­ing a sex act when she de­cided to move po­si­tion and ‘ swung her legs’ from un­der­neath her, be­fore ly­ing back on the bed with her head to­wards the bot­tom end. At that point, she claimed the bed gave way and she top­pled off the end, land­ing on her head.

Berk­shire Bed Com­pany said: ‘ We are de­lighted the court has ruled in our favour. We wish Miss Busby and her fam­ily well for the fu­ture.’

In­jured: Miss Busby
