The article discusses the court case Tyco Fire & Integrated Solutions Ltd. versus Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Ltd. in which the latter sued the contractor after the water pipes burst causing flood damage in its manufacturing plant. Rolls-Royce demanded liability for other damage to the plant, stored goods and clean-up costs. Tyco argued that it was not liable for the accident as stated in their 13.5 contract. The British Court of Appeal said that the contract was not intended to give Tyco a separate liability insurance for damages outside of its work.
