Fixed Costs – Civil Procedure Rules Amendments

Posted by on 5th September 2017 in March 2017 |

Posted by on 4th July 2018 in July 2018 |
Whilst the planned MoJ Reforms within the claims sector remain a popular topic for after dinner discussions and are likely to be for the foreseeable future, the use of mediation in Personal Injury/clinical negligence matters is a regular discussion point on forums and in various trade journal articles, indicating a slight shift towards acceptance by both sides that it is a viable option to be considered within Litigation.   Historically there has been a general feel that mediation was not appropriate in Personal Injury cases, case handlers being of the view that the standard round table type discussions between either side are sufficient.  However, it is our...
