A review of the Personal Injuries Assessment Board (Amendment) (No. 2) Bill 2018
An overview and commentary of the Central Bank (National Claims Information Database) Bill 2018
Insurer LV= and International law firm DWF have successfully fought a motor fraud case, leading to the conviction of nine people for an organised ‘crash for cash’ scheme.
Insurers are unable to recover the costs that they had paid on cases that were submitted to the Portal, but did not go any further than Stage 1. Delivering the judgment of the Court of Appeal in J C & A Solicitors v Iqbal & EUI Ltd (2017), Lord Justice Briggs held that the Pre-Action Protocol made it clear that costs would be paid at the end of each stage, irrespective of what happened next so that solicitors could be paid for the work that they had done. The rules made no express provision for repayment of the costs and none should be conferred by the Court.
