Mixed injury judgment


The news in 60 seconds

The Court of Appeal has handed down its first ‘mixed injury’ judgment since the whiplash portal was introduced. Kennedys partner Ian Davies said: “Today’s judgment provides some clarity on the approach to be adopted. Perhaps unsurprisingly it confirms the approach in… Sadler v Filipiak. With the comments of Davies LJ providing encouragement to the claimant market and the dissenting judgment of Voss MR ensuring the defendant has more than a little hope going forward, the focus will turn back to the detail of each medical report and the case presented on an individual basis. More appeals are a strong possibility.”
