Bailey v Smith

Practice – Pre-trial or post-judgment relief. The claimant was seriously injured through the defendant's admitted negligence in a road traffic accident in April 2012. A master ordered an interim payment of £500,000 to be paid to the claimant. The defendant appealed by way of challenge to the issues of contributory negligence and accommodation costs. The Queen's Bench Division dismissed the appeal as the decision of the master could not be faulted.
