|End date 1966|
Powell v Moody is English case law, often used for the settlement of civil claims brought as the result of road traffic collisions. The case was decided in 1966.
A recent case (Davis v Schrogin 2006) is lately quoted as a defence to Powell v Moody. However, Davis v Schrogin does not supersede Powell v Moody and that the latter is still considered in out-of-court settlements. This is because in the case of Davis v Schogin, the car driver emerged from a line of traffic to make a U-turn and not from a side road.
