Cases Citation

[2018] EWHC 1787 (QB)

Represented the defendant at a long trial in which the claimant’s claim for £4,434,307 in respect of a “subtle brain injury” and audio-vestibular injuries was dismissed.

She was awarded £41,250 in respect of whiplash and other soft tissue injuries, OCD and some PTSD symptoms. Her costs were reduced by 75% until the date of the defendant’s Part 36 offer and she was ordered to pay the defendant’s costs thereafter. Though this was a QOCS case, the Judge directed that the costs awarded to the claimant should be off-set against the costs awarded to the defendant.
