Taylor and another v A Novo (UK) Ltd [2013] EWCA Civ 194; [2013] WLR (D) 119

“A person who suffered psychiatric illness (post-traumatic stress disorder), after witnessing the sudden collapse and death of her mother who had been injured at work by the admitted negligence of the defendant employer some three weeks earlier, did not have a right of action as a secondary victim for damages against the defendant, since there was an insufficient relationship of proximity between the person suffering the psychiatric illness and the defendant.”
