Sam Hayman, Head of Costs, was quoted in Litigation Futures regarding our success in a case where the Defendant had tried to avoid payment of our client’s costs on the basis that the relevant pre-action protocol did not explicitly provide for payment of said costs.  The Defendant tendered payment of all the damages initially sought and refused to make any contribution to the Claimant’s costs, despite the Claimant having had to seek professional legal advice about his (rightful) claim for negligence.  The claim went to trial in order to secure a judgment of damages and costs, in which the Claimant was successful and then the question of costs was subsequently determined, on appeal, in the Claimant’s favour.
