The Plaintiff, Mr Glen Parkes, brought a claim for damages for injuries suffered whilst employed by Titan Technicians Enterprises Pty Ltd (Titan) and working at the Glendale Coal Mine (the Mine), which was owned and operated by Mt Owen Pty Ltd (Mt Owen).
On March 11, 2019, Mr Ford (appellant) was riding his motorcycle on Redland Bay Road when a piece of wood fell from a passing utility vehicle. The appellant managed to avoid the wood with his front wheel but ran over it with the back wheel, causing the motorcycle to jump. Despite initially thinking he was fine, he later experienced worsening back pain.
This is an appeal from the decision in Enkelmann v Stewart  QSC 111. In that decision, Williams J ordered the appellants to disclose any statements directly relevant to the issue on the pleadings of one of their experts, Mr G (a registered professional engineer).
