KLM v EUI Ltd

Damages – Personal injury. The Queen's Bench Division held that the claimant, who was awaiting a trial of assessment of damages for personal injury, was not entitled to an interim payment in the amount sought of £1.5m but was entitled to an interim payment of £900,000. Such interim payment would not fetter the discretion of the trial judge or inhibit his freedom of decision so as to create an unlevel playing field.
