Steadman v TNT




LTL 8/7/2008

2008-07-09

Credit hire; mitigation of loss.  A claimant who has refused to accept the defendant's offer to hire her a car is entitled to recover nothing, given that had she accepted the offer it would have been free to her.  A claimant cannot recover for something that would have been free, as she has lost nothing.  The cost to the defendant is an irrelevant consideration in mitigation.
