Mr Jaensch was held to owe a duty of care to Mrs Coffey. This was because Mrs Coffey was considered by the court to be caught up in the immediate aftermath of the accident and was therefore in physical proximity with the conduct of Mr Jaensch.

However, in Sutherland Shire Council v Heyman (1985), the court held that no duty of care was owed, as there was no relationship of dependence between the plaintiff and the defendant council which gave rise to reliance.
