*Cutting v Islam

Costs – Order for costs. In a personal injury claim brought by the claimant against the defendant doctor in respect of the deceased, the claimant's husband, the claimant was successful in respect of some issue and not in respect of others. Nevertheless the claimant submitted that she was entitled to all of her costs. The Queen's Bench Division taking all matters into account, including the absence of a part 36 offer on the part of the defendant and a later re-amendment by the claimant found that the claimant should have 75% of her costs.
