*Bird v Acorn Group Ltd

Damages – Personal injury. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the appellant's appeal against a finding that the third column of Table 6B of CPR 45.29E, which covered the amount of fixed costs recoverable under the Pre-Action protocol for Low Value Personal Injury (Employer's Liability and Public Liability) claims, was applicable to his case. The court held that a disposal hearing listed for the quantification of damages payable after judgment under CPR 26, PD 12.2(1)(a) was a trial within the meaning of CPR 45.29E(4)(c).
