Bright v Motor Insurers' Bureau

Costs – Assessment. The claimant in a personal injury action that had settled put in a bill of costs that included a success fee of 75% on the solicitors' charges. The second defendant, Motor Insurance Bureau, challenged that claim and offered 30%. A master accepted the 30% and the claimant appealed. The Queen's Bench Division considering CPR 45.18 held that the master had not erred in his approach to assessing a reasonable success fee.
