Given our longstanding background in dealing with costs matters in personal injury and clinical negligence cliams, we are regularly instructed in industrial disease cases to include asbestos, noise induced hearing loss and VWF claims.
From a costs perspective they can be particularly challenging, involving complex medical evidence, liability experts, arguments surrounding liability, causation and quantum, as well as multiple defendants and their respective insurers.
An example includes dealing with the costs of the Claimant arising from a mesothelioma claim.
As part of the initial costs negotiations the Defendant was only prepared to offer £60,500. However, the case was then referred to a Costs Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) service, following which costs were assessed in excess of £70,000.
