  • 9 Feb 1929, Following a collision on the Prince's Highway, between Beaconsfield and Officer, William Shadbolt, of South Melbourne, is claiming £1,000 damages jointly from Arthur B. Davy, of Upper Beaconsfield, hire-car proprietor, and Miss Alice Bullman, of Narre Warren North, motor-car proprietor.12
  • 9 Feb 1929, CLAIM FOR £1,000 DAMAGES. TWO MOTOR-CAR OWNERS SUED. Accident Near Beaconsfield.
    Driving in a jinker along the Prince's Highway, between Beaconsfield and Officer, on December 26, 1927, William Shadbolt, of Ward-street, South Melbourne, printer's machinist, was thrown out in consequence of a motor-car driven by Arthur B. Davy, of Upper Beaconsfield, hire-car proprietor, striking the jinker in the rear. Just before the impact Davy's motor-car had collided with one owned by Miss Alice Bullman, of Narre Warren North, motor-car proprietor.
    Before Judge Wasley, in the Criminal Court yesterday, Shadbolt brought an action claiming £1,000 damages jointly from Davy and Miss Bullman. Included in the sum was £88/7/6 medical expenses and loss of wages. Shadbolt pleaded that he had a hurricane lamp on his vehicle. Night had fallen at the time of the accident. Davy was negligent in that he had driven at an excessive speed, that he had attempted to pass the junker when another motor-car was about to pass, and had failed to apply the brakes or stop in sufficient time. The negligence urged against the driver of Miss Bullman's car was that no proper lookout was kept, that the car was driven on the wrong side of the road and at an excessive speed, and that the driver had failed to allow sufficient room for the car of the other defendant to pass. Shadbolt pleaded that he had sustained concussion of the brain, and was injured about the head and other parts of his body.
    Davy denied negligence, and alleged contributory negligence, in that Shadbolt had driven the jinker after dark without sufficient lights. Miss Bullman denied all the allegations in the statement of claim in so far as they implicated herself.
    Mr Magennis and Mr Stafford (instructed by Messrs W.B. and O. McCutcheon) appeared for the plaintiff. Mr Menzies (instructed by Mr J. P. Rhoden) appeared for Miss Bullman, and Dr Ellis (instructed by Messrs Hamilton, Wynne, and Riddell) appeared for Davy.
    The hearing had not concluded when the Court rose.13
  • 15 Feb 1929, VERDICT FOR £470. JUDGMENT AGAINST CAR-OWNER. Second Defendant Succeeds.
    Judgment was entered against one of the defendants in the action in which William Shadbolt, of Ward-street, South Melbourne, printer's machinist, claimed £1,000 damages from Arthur B. Davy, of Upper Beaconsfield motor car proprietor and Miss Alice Bullman of Narre Warren North, motorcar proprietor. Shadbolt was driving a jinker along the Princes Highway between Beaconsfield and Officer on December 26, 1927, when he was thrown out of his jinker in consequence of a motor car driven by Davy striking the jinker in the rear. Just before the impact Davy' s motor-car had collided with one owned by Miss Bullman. Shadbolt took action against both Davy and Miss Bullman pleading negligence in each case. Both Davy and Miss Bullman denied negligence.
    Mr.Maginnis and Mr. Stafford (instructed by Messrs. W. B. and O. McCutcheon) appeared for plaintiff; Mr Menzies K.C., and Mr. Read (instructed by Mr. J. P. Rhoden) appeared for Miss Bullmans: and Dr. Ellis (instructed by Messrs. Hamilton, Wynne, and Riddell) appeared for Davy.
    The jury returned a verdict for plaintiff as against Davy, and assessed damages at £470. Judgement was entered for the amount with costs. Plaintiff was ordered to pay Miss Bullman's costs, but he was given the right to recover the amount from Davy.14
