egg-shell-600-x-413The Egg Shell Principle
The Egg-shell skull principle says a defendant must take his victim as he finds him. So, for example  if a person negligently injures someone by asking them to climb a ladder which is unsafe and results in them falling,  they cannot complain if the injuries they have caused turn out to be more serious than expected because the victim suffered from a pre-existing weakness such as an unusually thin skull or a weak heart.
