Lat (a child suing by his mother and litigation friend Pat) v East Somerset NHS Trust (now Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust)

Damages – Personal injury. The Queen's Bench Division held that the claimant was not entitled to the interim payment in the amount sought but she was however entitled to an interim payment in the sum of £1,100,000. When that was added to the £250,000 already paid, the total interim payments of £1,350,000 represented approximately 81% of the total likely capital award as assessed by the judge hearing the matter.
