Low value PI claims

Broadhurst v Tan [2016] EWCA Civ 94

Following some confusion arising from a point of construction, the Court of Appeal has ruled that in fixed costs personal injury claims governed by CPR Pt 45 sIIIA, costs were payable on the indemnity basis under CPR r36.14 when a claimant made a Pt 36 offer and obtained judgment which was more advantageous than the offer. Since r36.14(3) had not been modified by r36.14A, it continued to have full force and effect. Fixed costs were not to be equated with indemnity costs and any tension between r45.29B and r36.14A therefore had to be resolved in favour of r36.14A.
